Coast IRB opens local office

Coast Independent Review Board LLC, a company that monitors the safety of drugs and medical devices, opened a temporary office in Colorado Springs on May 14. Within 60 days, the company will move into a permanent, 10,000-square-foot office at 5475 Mark Dabling Blvd., suite 351. The new office is undergoing remodeling, said Bill Darnell, project manager.

The Orange County, Calif.-headquartered Coast IRB announced in February it would open an office in Colorado Springs and bring 180 jobs in the next five years.

The work force is at 16 now, Darnell said. He expects employees to number 50 by the end of this year.

The company focuses on protecting patients of clinical reserach trials.
