Life science research & development

Life science organisations are at the forefront of scientific innovation. Their goal: to solve the greatest challenges facing humanity through a better understanding of biological function and disease. To this end, life science organisations invest billions of dollars in R&D annually.

But it’s not all about groundbreaking discoveries. Big change can be brought about through incremental improvement across the portfolio. Because every improvement, however small, can impact patient lives, whether a new cancer treatment or an improved catheter design.

To grow market share, meet consumer expectations and comply with legislation, life science organisations must continually invest in their R&D function to drive innovation. This requires professionals with the right mix of skills and experience to deliver results.

Fraser Dove International can help. Our research and development function - staffed by expert consultants with an in-depth knowledge of R&D - bring together R&D professionals and visionaries with leading life science organisations and emerging startups in the following areas.
