ALBANY, N.Y.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Albany Molecular Research, Inc. (AMRI), a leading global contract research, development and manufacturing organization serving the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries, today announced that it is changing its name to Curia, effective July 12, 2021.

Along with the name change, the company is introducing a new brand identity including a new website: CuriaGlobal.com.
