Progressing from in vitro to in vivo studies can be a critical time for a project. Going too early & generating poor results can kill a project. Delaying too long costs time & money. It is important to plan the right studies and to identify the right CRO.


CBV has experience in achieving this important project milestone across multiple therapeutic areas, with both biologicals & new chemical entities & can provide the guidance you may need.
