IDSC's leadership pioneered the art of developing and managing high performing vendors in North America, Europe and Asia and has many years of experience managing the outsourcing programs for big pharma.  Capabilities of the CROs that IDSC recommends span the disciplines of chemistry, pharmacology (in vitro screening and in vivo efficacy), ADME, safety, etc.  IDSC partners clients from small biotech companies to large pharmaceutical companies with vendors that have consistently delivered the highest quality services.

IDSC recommends CROs that are best suited for success.  We do not broker or represent CROs, but are compensated only by our clients and do not receive fees, or kickbacks from CROs that we recommend. We work with approximately 70 CROs offering services in chemistry, in vitro and in vivo pharmacology, ADME, and safety/tox.  Our recommendation of CROs to clients is driven by a business philosophy to identify the right CRO to fit the client's needs for the particular task at hand.
