Mission
The customized strategies and concepts developed by ClinDescience will support your decision-making in complex situations of drug development. Our goal is to contribute to a substantial reduction in the development time of your compounds.

Our expertise will help you in evaluating the potential of a compound.


Strategy
The first step is a thorough risk-benefit analysis of the compound under consideration. It is important to harmonize the pre-clinical investigations and the clinical development program. In addition, the approval strategy will have a significant impact on the clinical study program.


We will draft an individual development plan for your compounds based on our scientific expertise and our many years of experience in this industry. Of specific note is our experience in dealing with the regulatory authorities governing clinical and drug development. In this area of the business, we are able to clearly determine the likelihood of success and the risks associated with different options.


The core focus of ClinDescience is to join with pharmaceutical and biotech companies in drug development from the pre-clinical phase through to the approval process. This can take place in close cooperation with the advisory boards and the regulatory authorities in Europe and the USA. Such cooperation will support your current drug development programs and will result in a reduced overall development time.


We combine a deep know-how in basic research with international experience in clinical issues and drug approval. Our relationships with internationally acclaimed experts enable us to call on their expertise when there is a need to provide second opinions.
