Strategic Regulatory Consulting & Planning

Applying experience, knowledge, and insights to plan and implement regulatory strategies for successful interactions with the FDA and other Global Regulatory Agencies.

Preparing your strategic regulatory plan for your development program starts before and continues after preparing your Investigational New Drug  (IND) application.  As you look to transition your compound into clinical trials, you need the right partner to guide your planning and decision making.  Our regulatory, scientific, and communications experts provide strategic regulatory planning, cross-functional operational support, and the practical, real-world knowledge of how to present your regulatory strategy, non-clinical toxicology plans, clinical trial design, and product development goals to the regulatory agencies.
