Our scientists frequently collaborate with pharmaceutical, biotech, and academic clients to develop research tools and provide services that help produce consistent, predictive data, while meeting client timelines.  These collaborations often result in coauthored publications and scientific posters.
Collaborative Research Project Steps:

  1. Submit an inquiry.
  2. A dedicated project manager will identify the scientists and specialists best suited to address your needs and will schedule an initial meeting.
  3. Our project team will work with you to confirm research goals and determine the assays, reagents or services needed to meet your goals.
  4. Frequent, proactive communication is provided to you throughout the project to help you track progress.
To gain a more complete understanding of the types of collaborative projects we engage in with our customers, see the examples below.
