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.
- 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
- 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.
