The foundation of our approach is built on deep understanding of and expertise in clinical development of drugs, diseases and the clinical practice; the philosophy of client-centered approach, in alignment with ultimate patient benefits.
Our expertise comes from the experience of around 34 years of clinical oncology and related basic sciences, 20 years in the pharmaceutical industry and related settings, and successful experiences in new drug development
The global pharmaceutical industry has been facing a crisis over the last two decades, characterized by skyrocketing development costs, high failure rates, and dwindling returns. In parallel, tectonic shifts in the healthcare landscape have taken place with numerous new biotech companies boldly launching innovative drug discovery programs including several hundreds in Korea.
The key factors for success in drug development include well thought-out development strategies, robust clinical development plans and sound project management. Setting up an innovative but feasible development strategy early on in product development and seamless project management by professionals with in-depth knowledge, specific competencies and real-world experience guarantee greater confidence in success and provide a clear guidance along the way for a company.
CCS provides professional consulting services specialized in pharmaceutical R&D, focusing on corporate R&D strategies, portfolio management, and asset development strategies for biotech and pharmaceutical companies. We help translate strategies into execution that leads to smooth transition to next phases. Our recommendations are based on rigorous analysis, in-depth research and an understanding of the gaps in drug development and unmet medical needs of patients.
We work on different models including project-base, retainer, virtual development team as a service, and Contract Clinical Development Organization (CCDO).
CCS also wants to create a bridge that addresses gaps in organizational development capabilities and coordination, and differences between regions, ethnic groups and in standards of care (SOC).
We work across geographical regions and different sizes of companies to deliver results that lead to organization effectiveness, study design improvement, and faster development.
