The Pistoia Alliance has announced the appointment of Carmen Nitsche as Executive Director Business Development North America, as the organization looks to expand its global reach.
Our Controlled Substances Compliance Services (CSCS) project has made it significantly easier for life science companies to comply with controlled substance legislation by establishing an expert community to interpret the often-ambiguous rules.
Our new online Interactive Project Portfolio Platform (IP3) has been launched in order to encourage the entire life sciences research community to generate and share new, innovative ideas and drive the creation of novel, collaborative solutions.
Lowering Barriers to R&D Innovation
We are a global, not-for-profit alliance of life science companies, vendors, publishers, and academic groups that work together to lower barriers to innovation in R&D.
Our projects transform R&D innovation through pre-competitive collaboration. We bring together the key constituents to identify the root causes that lead to R&D inefficiencies. We develop best practices and technology pilots to overcome common obstacles.
Our members collaborate as equals on open projects that generate significant value for the worldwide life sciences community.
With the launch of our Interactive Project Portfolio Platform (IP3) we are embracing a new level of openness, access, and transparency around our idea-to-project process. The platform is open to the public to submit new ideas, comment and vote on proposed ideas, and monitor the progress of our projects.
