CDDG offers a broad range of expertise

CDDG provides both strategic guidance and access to a full range of specific consulting expertise. For example, at early project stages we can help with target validation, assay development and identification of a lead molecule to de-risk your project and facilitate optimal positioning for later development. We have a strong scientific background in immunology and are able to support a number of therapeutic areas, including inflammatory disease, infectious disease, metabolic disease and oncology. Through our network of affiliates, CDDG also offers expertise in toxicology, PKDM, patent law and business development to continue advancing your project and support successful partnering discussions. Importantly, all CDDG experts bring considerable hands-on industry experience and are adept at supporting a variety of projects. We also offer access to an expanded range of expertise and services through our strategic partners.


Some of our specific areas of focus

Collectively, the CDDG offers the collective knowledge and experience needed to advance your project confidently through many of the key steps of drug development. A key advantage of our approach is that all expert support is coordinated within the CDDG framework, thereby improving communication efficiency and enabling more opportunities for synergy.
