Evolution Research Group, LLC Expands Clinical Development Capabilities and Adds Scientific Expertise
NEW PROVIDENCE, N.J., Nov. 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Evolution Research Group, LLC (ERG), a privately held, independent pharmaceutical services provider focused on neuroscience added Lotus Clinical Research, LLC and CNS Ratings, LLC to its portfolio, substantially expanding its service offering. The integration of these organizations began in February of this year.
ERG expanded its service offering to include specialized full-service CRO and rater training capabilities to satisfy increasing client demand, particularly in the early clinical development space. The expansion supports ERG’s consistent strategy of continuously adding talent and services to further diversify within neuroscience and streamline clinical trial execution across all phases of development.
Founded in 2001 by Neil Singla, MD, an industry leading KOL in the strategic planning and execution of acute and chronic pain trials, Lotus built its reputation as a scientifically driven, niche CRO and site service provider.

ERG appointed William Martin, Ph.D., to the role of President of Lotus, allowing Dr. Singla to focus more on its scientific consulting activities, which is his true passion.
CNS Ratings, LLC was founded by Paul Michael Ramirez, Ph.D., and has been providing rater training and surveillance services as well as clinical program design and scientific consulting for more than 30 years.
