Integrated CRO and CDMO Solutions

Gain speed, simplicity and scalability with our integrated CRO and CDMO solutions

Developing novel therapies and bringing them to patients is a high-risk process. Working across multiple vendors can extend an already lengthy drug development process, generating additional decision-making, timeline gaps and overall progress challenges. That’s why sponsors need a streamlined clinical research, development and manufacturing organization (CRDMO) solution, combining the expertise and technology of a contract research organization (CRO) and contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO), delivering speed, simplicity and scalability to clinical trials, drug development and manufacturing.

Coordinating activities across all stages of drug development with integrated CRO and CDMO solutions ensures simplified and scalable pathways, from concept to market.
