    The power of smart analytics

    With recent advances in science and research methodologies, the sheer volume of information at hand has increased the importance of statistics and data science.
    Applied correctly, statistics and data science can support the pharmaceutical industry:

    • Identify or validate new drug targets by means of statistical genomics, bioinformatics and computational biology techniques
    • Inform better decisions in clinical development (e.g. more efficient trial design, improved patient profiles)
    • Apply prior knowledge of Bayesian statistics to reduce future costs and save time
    • Realize the promise of precision medicine through biomarkers and diagnostics
    • Lead to safer, more-robust manufacturing by using the quality-by-design concept
    • Unlock data insights by using advanced methods like artificial intelligence and machine learning
    • Progress the digitalization of the pharmaceutical industry

    A multidisciplinary team of experts

    Our team of (Bayesian) statisticians, data scientists, computational biologists, statistical geneticists, epidemiologists, bioengineers, pharmacists, and programmers offers an outstanding level of skill and expertise in pharmaceutical, life science, MedTech and Biotech industries. 

    Stretching across many diseases, our combined experience supports both target identification and the development of drugs, biologics and medical devices at every phase.

    PharmaLex is recognized as a global leader in the application of Bayesian methodology, biomarker statistics and CMC statistics. Many of our scientists have wet-lab experience which helps them tackle challenges in biological data. We speak and operate in many languages, including SAS, R, STAN, JAGS and Python. Our deep regulatory experience also helps you navigate all statistical facets of study design and regulatory strategy.

    The discovery and pre-clinical development of new drug products is a growing challenge for biopharmaceutical industry. Rapid advances in technologies help to better understand the biology of a new drug product. The vast increase in data, however, increases the risk of false discoveries leading to costly mistakes. In PharmaLex our statistical experts use appropriate statistical methods to improve reproducibility and increase the efficiency of discovery and pre-clinical studies.
