“We are thrilled to welcome Calvert Labs to LabCentral as our newest Gold sponsor. Our number one focus is to bring people, ideas, and resources together to assure that the most innovative and promising solutions are advanced efficiently and effectively,” said LabCentral Co-Founder and President, Johannes Fruehauf, M.D., Ph.D. “A critical ingredient includes access to knowhow and resources within and beyond the walls of LabCentral. By their sponsorship and direct engagement with the LabCentral community, Calvert Labs will bring both.”

“For nearly 20 years, we have supported the emerging biotech and pharma ecosystem in the greater Boston area and we look forward to deepening our commitment to this community with our sponsorship of LabCentral,” said Calvert Labs CEO, Michael A. Recny, Ph.D. “We look forward to contributing our expert scientific and regulatory knowledge and resources to help LabCentral’s start-up companies accelerate their drug development programs into the clinic.”

Calvert Labs’ sponsorship will help connect LabCentral companies with Calvert’s senior scientists that have decades of experience in safety assessment, pharmacology models and pharmacokinetic evaluation of experimental compounds to help support lead optimization, clinical candidate selection and Investigational New Drug (IND) application filings by LabCentral companies in the U.S. and abroad.
