Advancing your program with agility and efficiency

With uncertainties, risks and interdependencies, drug development programs are very challenging to project manage.  It takes considerable skill, knowledge, and cross-functional expertise to align activities and move in lockstep toward your project goal.

Certara’s Project Managers and Coordinators plan, organize and manage resources efficiently, successfully achieving project goals. We provide project management outsourcing support for your function or department.  Our team offers end-to-end project management expertise and excellence in both early and late-stage drug development programs.

For many clients, we provide full support with both project management and drug program stewardship.

Expert project management to run your program with precision

Our project managers partner closely with your team to clearly define objectives, roles and responsibilities and maintain accountability.  We believe it is also critical to facilitate open communication among all stakeholders.  The project manager is the central hub of the project.  We integrate everything together into a cohesive plan and help to execute, ensuring that details are taken care of, and the project progresses in lockstep.
