Why Partner with The University of Maryland and PCStrategies?

Provides CRO capabilities that draw on world-class experts to solve the most complex problems.

Companies developing new products typically do not have the in-house expertise to support in-depth animal studies. Working with a CRO allows the sponsor to maximize research dollars by out-sourcing this level of support and expertise.

Offers scientific, regulatory, and veterinary expertise.

Pre-clinical studies intended for submission to the FDA must be performed in accordance with the U.S. 21 Code of Federal Regulations Part 58 – Good Laboratory Practices (GLPs). Conducting pre-clinical studies under GLP regulations assures regulatory agencies such as the U.S. FDA that the data integrity and controlled environment can support efficacy and safety statements regarding medical devices and investigational new drugs.

Individuals providing GLP efforts must be highly qualified and trained. Research & Consultation Services staff of ACLAM boarded veterinarians, world-class scientists, and Registered Quality Assurance GLP professionals are here to move your goals and objectives forward. All non-GLP work is performed at the same high level of quality assurance and standards.

Conducts CRO services using cutting-edge facilities, techniques, and equipment.

Our facility locations, security, design, and construction are geared to handle a wide variety of species and volume of animals using the highest quality equipment and techniques.

Provides support to take discovery from the laboratory bench and provides all pre-clinical services to translate science into marketable products.

Research & Consultation Services works closely with our sponsors to develop and deliver pharmacokinetic (PK), toxicology, or proof-of-concept studies on-time and in-budget.

Saves research dollars.

Today’s research sponsors work in a world of tight budgets and limited investor dollars. Our University setting reminds us of how important it is to be fiscally responsible and transparent. There are no ‘mark-up costs’ when you work with Research & Consultation Services, as there are no stockholders or investors. Pricing reflects the need to recover the true costs of carrying out the proposed research.

Assures animal welfare.

The University of Maryland, School of Medicine's Comparative Medicine Program has maintained the Association for Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care International (AAALAC) accreditation since 1985 and proudly, at an Exemplary Level. Routine inspections by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) have issued no 483s or citations of concern in our Program history.
