The acquisition follows M3’s purchase of London-based EMS Research in November 2010 and Doctors.net.uk’
Aki Tomaru, Chief Executive Officer of M3 USA, said: “Concurrent with our investment in MDLinx.com to serve the US healthcare market, this acquisition allows us to dramatically extend our services to doctors and the healthcare sector in the UK.
“This is stepping stone for M3 to expand further into Europe and it signals our commitment to providing the life science industry full global access.”
Richard Adams, Chief Executive of Doctors.net.uk, said: “Doctors.net.uk has for some time been working towards adding a strong international footprint, comprising communities in key healthcare markets, to complement our leading position in the UK. We believe that to best serve our members and our client interests, being part of a larger, multinational organisation will bring enormous advances and benefits.
“With a truly global footprint, M3 offers access to a compelling range of resources and this exciting move will enable us to enhance and introduce many new services and solutions.”
