Approach

The Office of Discovery and Translation (ODAT) utilizes both individual project teams and standing committees based on the needs of the project and the goals of the particular funding program.

ODAT’s network of experts includes individuals in the following areas:

  • Biostatistics
  • Project management
  • Product development
  • Technology commercialization (licensing and start-up opportunities)
  • Chemical manufacturing and controls (CMC)
  • Regulatory strategy and guidance
  • Clinical trial design and conduct
  • Pre-clinical study design
  • Pre-clinical toxicology

If a particular project requires expertise outside of ODAT’s existing network, we will work to find the resource needed to ensure project success.
