Meet AP Biosciences

The life sciences and technology industry has undergone momentous change in the last forty years. We’ve witnessed the rise of nanotechnology, recombinant DNA, gene therapy, and stem-cell treatments. What hasn’t changed is the role that staffing and recruiting companies have played in companies of all sizes. From startups to Fortune 500 firms, companies in life sciences have used contract staffing to fill vacant needs, increase headcount, and hire technical professionals with hard-to-find skill sets. While staffing has been a part of the life sciences industry for years, we’re happy to announce the addition of AP Biosciences to the New England contract and permeant placement landscape.

What is AP Biosciences?

AP Biosciences is a life sciences staffing firm dedicated to providing top talent for direct hires, contract placements, and everything in between. We serve companies in the biotechnology, pharmaceutical, and medical device industries. We thrive by rapidly meeting our customer’s needs, providing highly qualified individuals with unique specializations and years of experience doing the work you’re looking for. Unlike some staffing firms, we don’t send resumes, we send qualified candidates.

Who is AP Biosciences?

At AP Biosciences, we’re a small team focused on finding the talent that companies in the life sciences industry need to meet tight deadlines, ramp up new product lines, and grow. Our recruiting efforts are bolstered with the back-office capabilities of our parent company, Black Diamond Networks, ensuring that consultants and full-time employees placed with us have the support they need before, during, and after a placement has been made. Now that you’ve learned about the company, it’s time to meet the team.
