[Source: east Valley Tribune, Joe O’Neil] -Covance, a multibillion-dollar world class company, celebrated Thursday the opening of its early-stage medical research facility in Chandler.

One of the world’s largest and most comprehensive drug development services companies, it has the people, global resources and problem-solving culture to respond to pharmaceutical and biotechnology clients’ toughest drug development challenges.
