Safety Assessment

In this unprecedented climate of change and uncertainty, we in the research community are faced with all new challenges. Now more than ever, we know our work must continue for the patients who are waiting for new therapies. That’s why our global network is prepared and equipped. The Safety Assessment team is working together to prioritize all research on COVID-19 and our global footprint and deep scientific network can help your development plans to remain on track regardless of the challenges you are facing.

From complete IND-enabling programs to stand-alone assessments, our Safety Assessment team provides a full range of in vivo and in vitro testing services and regulatory support to comply with worldwide regulatory restrictions for the nonclinical development of pharmaceuticals, medical devices and animal health products as well as chemicals, agrochemicals, and biocides. Our scientific and regulatory staff work with clients to develop and execute individual studies or customized testing programs to ensure that drug safety and efficacy assessments are conducted in the most efficient manner.
