Scientific Staffing Program

The Charles River RightSource℠ scientific staffing program is a flexible insourcing/outsourcing option for biologics developers and manufacturers. RightSource℠ removes the challenges of externalizing your biologics testing by providing customized options that allow you to maintain as much or as little control over your in-house resources, capital assets, and facilities that you consider strategic and cost efficient. We work with the clients to find the best option and can mobilize our resources to get to work quickly, evolving with the program’s needs over time.
