Outsourcing pharmaceutical discovery and development activities offers the ability to maximiseresource and access a diverse range of services. Once the decision has been made to outsource an activity, the next challenge is to select the right CRO or service provider. This process can be overwhelming and time consuming.
The team at The Research Network has extensive knowledge of CROs and service providers across the globe, with particular expertise in India and China. Our industrial experience and independent view will help you find the solution that is right for you. Many CROs do outstanding work in certain research areas (e.g., compound synthesis) but may not have the required expertise in other areas such as protein supply, so at TRN our aim is to work with the most appropriate CRO to meet your specific request.
TRN does not represent CROs, but recommend those with a high performance, and we are driven to find the right partner to fit your project needs.
We can provide outsourcing solutions to one aspect of your research, or provide project management across a range of desired CROs for a program of drug discovery.
On your behalf, TRN will manage the Request for Quote process, liaise with suppliers to achieve the most competitive price and the most appropriate service model for you, e.g. on a fee for service, FTE, or combined basis.
Examples of research areas, where TRN can assist with your outsourcing needs are in:
