Dr. Jacques Turgeon, Chief Scientific Officer, TRHC, stated that the institute will aim to forge partnerships with academic and pharmaceutical entities, and also look forward to the opportunity to join hands with globally acclaimed organizations.

Commenting further on the launch, Knowlton affirmed that the company is thrilled to not only be a part of the innovation prevalent in Lake Nona Medical City, but also to have gained the guidance of Dr. Michaud and Dr. Turgeon, stalwarts recognized for their expertise in pharmacokinetics & drug-metabolism and research and pharmacy education respectively.
