Life Science Strategy Group Launches the OutsourcePharma Advisory Board

Online community dedicated to pharmaceutical sponsors provides open forum to discuss drug development and outsourced Contract Research Organization (CRO) services.

Menlo Park, CA, May 28, 2014 --( Life Science Strategy Group (LSSG), a leading strategic consulting firm to the CRO industry, today announced the launch of the OutsourcePharma Advisory Board. First of its kind, the online pharmaceutical sponsor-driven community is the go-to location providing an open forum to discuss pharmaceutical discovery, development, manufacturing and outsourcing services. The community also features detailed YELP-like sponsor reviews of Contract Research Organizations (CROs), including performance metrics across key criteria used by outsourcing professionals to evaluate current and potential partners, feedback about study experiences and willingness to recommend the CRO.

“Through our virtual community, the OutsourcePharma Advisory Board members have multiple opportunities to network with one another across groups, share expertise and express opinions on outsourced services and the CROs providing them,” said Jon Meyer, Co-founder and CRO Practice Leader of Life Science Strategy Group, LLC.

Members are invited to contribute original “perspectives” on current or emerging issues related to outsourced discovery, preclinical and clinical development, registration, post-approval and manufacturing services. Comments or questions about these perspectives can then be made in discussion forums, which facilitate the exchange of dialogue between members. The discussion forums also host active threads on a variety of outsourced topics that are open for participation by members. Members may also browse opportunities to participate in paid market research telephone interviews and Internet surveys.

“This is truly an exciting time for the outsourcing community,” added Jon Meyer. “Never before has there been such a comprehensive resource for drug developers and outsourcing professionals. The discussion forums, dedicated groups, resources, and detailed CRO reviews provide insight members can actually use to make better informed decisions.”
