It adds to the marketing communications company’s purchases of ISO Health and Arcus Medica and will further boost its W2O Science scientific marketing communications offering.

W2O CEO Jim WeissW2O’s founder and CEO Jim Weiss (pictured left) said: “We were already partnering successfully with Radius to bring our clients’ science to life through more dynamic and impactful digital media and evocative artistic expression.

“Formally joining forces with this highly respected digital science powerhouse further diversifies our extensive ‘marketeching’ toolbox and raises the bar for how we execute on scientific creative across our suite of integrated capabilities.”
