Selected Consulting Examples:

  • A U.S.-based biotechnology company had a platform technology producing a product at the pre-manufacturing stage. Following an inital assessment of the product and the marketplace, a life-cycle development plan spanning CMC, toxicology, clinical pharmacology, clinical trials, and regulatory strategy was constructed and is now being implemented.
  • The U.K. affiliate of a multinational pharmaceutical company wanted to reorganize their marketing and medical departments to increase productivity.
