BioVenture Luncheon Series: Pre-Clinical Processes for Pharmaceutical Development

11/14/12 (W) 12:00 - 1:30 pm

Rochester BioVenture Center, 77 Ridgeland Road, Rochester, NY

The road to approval of a new drug involves advancing through several phases, and pre-clinical testing is one of the first major hurdles in determining whether a lead compound will proceed further on the path to reaching the market. Care in planning and executing the pre-clinical trials can help prevent rejection of viable leads as well as establish a firm foundation for those candidates that can proceed to the Investigational New Drug Application stage.

Are you looking for a research lab to collaborate on pre-clinical work? Calvert Labs will present a discussion of their laboratory services for pre-clinical testing of new drug and vaccine candidates, along with a presentation on the expanding pharmaceutical development at Bausch + Lomb.
