Contract Research

Industry Overview:
 

Contract research organizations (CROs) are growing players in biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, and the medical device industry. The path from conception to FDA approval can take upwards of a decade and $1 billion, while as few as 1 in every 10,000 drug ideas eventually clear this process. CROs help to supply cost-effective, cutting-edge expertise and infrastructure that a drug sponsor may lack. Companies aren’t the only ones enlisting the help of these organizations – increasingly, research institutions, universities, and even governmental organizations are turning to them for support.

The contract research industry is a relatively new one, and is still establishing itself through mergers and partnerships, expansions and consolidations. They offer a variety of services, from small firms which focus on specific areas – such as molecular modeling – to multinational organizations which can move a drug through discovery, pre-clinical trials, and all four stages of clinical trials.

Common Applications:
 
  • Intermediates
  • Specialized Reagents
  • Synthetic Route Design and Optimization
  • Resynthesis
  • Small-Volume Manufacturing
  • Combinatorial Building Blocks
  • Chiral-Synthesis/Enantiomeric Resolution
  • Stable Isotope Derivatives
