To better understand what we do at Sumus, we’d like to introduce you to some of our clients. First up is Atlantic Research Group (ARG), led by President Lyle Camblos and CEO Paul Bishop. Headquartered in Charlottesville, Virginia, ARG is a contract research organization that specializes in oncology, immunology, and rare disease work, piloting a wide variety of research projects. Recently, ARG has been assisting its clients by conducting research to develop technology for personalized disease treatment plans to fight cancer; they even have a client working to grow body part replacements in laboratories. These will be used by the Department of Defense to help wounded soldiers.

From its beginnings in 2004, founders Lyle Camblos and Paul Bishop intended to differentiate ARG from other contract research organizations by providing its clients with a more personalized, flexible experience. Even though ARG is known for its nimble agility as an organization, its clients are found all across the world. From the United States to Israel to Korea, ARG provides comprehensive clinical development services for its clients through personalized trial management and consulting.

Here at Sumus, we support ARG through customized executive advisement programs. CEO Jim Baker meets weekly with ARG executives to provide them with operational advice. His experience leading the US-based Ockham Development Group and expanding the company internationally has provided Baker with invaluable insight to share with ARG executives during weekly consultations. Furthermore, Baker’s approach to advisement encourages ARG executives to see multiple perspectives of practical issues.
