INC Research, a therapeutically focused CRO, has launched INC Research Strategic Advisory Services, a new global business unit dedicated to providing biopharmaceutical customers with world-class consulting capabilities in the areas of drug development and commercialization, regulatory consulting and submissions and quality assurance.
Through a new integrated services model, INC Research provides clinical expertise with extensive strategic advisory capabilities to help biopharmaceutical organizations mitigate risks, maximize resources and offer greater insight into product development lifecycles, commercialization opportunities and challenges.
“We’re excited to offer strategic advisory capabilities to biopharmaceutical companies in a more integrated way,” said Tim Dietlin, senior vice president of global consulting and strategic alliances, INC Research, and head of the new unit. “Working as an integrated team gives our expert advisors better visibility into our customers’ product development lifecycles and needs, enabling a true strategic partnership to evolve. This model allows greater flexibility and agility to identify opportunities, anticipate challenges and offer a broader range of perspectives and options for how to best address them.”
