Safety Pharmacology

From our world-class safety evaluation center in Suzhou, scientists conduct a full scope of in vitro and in vivo safety pharmacology studies to assess the potential for toxicity across major therapeutic areas, including cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, renal and the central nervous system. As part of our mission to seamlessly deliver high-quality data that enables high-quality drug candidates, we invest in the most advanced technology for data acquisition and processing. We utilize the state-of-the-art Ponemah software platform for data collection and assimilation.
