Industry projects

We are interested in industry projects that have scientific merit to us.

Our expertise on pig models, cardiac physiology, intervention, imaging, and molecular biology offers comprehensive preclinical evaluation of new drugs/devices.

Please contact us for potential projects. We can provide rough budgets if you already have a study design. We can also help with designing.

Below are Pros and Cons for working with us on industry projects.

Pros

  • High quality data with good care on consistency and reproducibility.
  • Study design assistance based on our previous experience.
  • High survival rates for many of the animal models.
  • Long term and wide range expertise on cardiac physiology and imaging.
  • Cost is usually much less than CRO.
  • Potential new discovery. -We have multiple patent applications based on industry collaboration projects

Cons

  • We are not GLP approved facility, although we take care and follow GLP guidelines.
  • We are not interested in projects that do not lead to scientific publications.
  • Number of animals may not be too large – but we can induce 3 MIs/day if necessary.
