Transforming ideas into impact

Curia is a global contract research, development and manufacturing organization (CDMO), offering products and services across the drug development spectrum to help our partners turn their ideas into real-world impact. We partner closely with pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies to boost business performance and improve patients’ lives.

A history of life-changing life science

We’ve come a long way from our founding in 1991 as Albany Molecular Research, Inc. (AMRI). Originally known for the discovery and development of the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) in Allegra, we’ve built a strong foundation over the past three decades. Now known as Curia, we’re always evolving to add a wide array of new capabilities and developing a comprehensive suite of solutions capable of serving customers across the drug development spectrum.
