About Us



With over 30 years of experience, Pharmacology Discovery Services conducts non-GLP safety and efficacy in vivo studies to meet the in vivo pharmacology needs of our clients.  We offer efficacy models in eight different therapeutic areas that incorporate biomarkers and outcome measures to enable greater prediction of success in the clinic.  Each therapeutic area is supported by Technical Directors and Study Directors that are all fluent in English (written and verbal). Our laboratory staff, with an average of 15 years experience, can meet a variety of study endpoints to generate the high-quality, reproducible data your projects require. To meet the needs of your specific drug discovery project we also have the flexibility to develop custom in vivo models.
