According to Lynn Fallon, Executive Vice President and President, Consulting Services at CTI, “The S2 team members are incredibly accomplished with top-ranked scientists, health economists, and statisticians, and will join Dr. William Irish, CTI’s Vice President of Health Outcomes and Biostatistics, as well as the rest of our team at CTI.

“We firmly believe that health outcomes and economics are critically important to both our biotechnology and pharmaceutical clients. This merger strengthens our service offerings from the early development stages of drugs and devices through Phase 3 and commercialization.

Investors often require companies to build economic models to provide product valuation, even in early development. Health economics is also proving particularly important to the many orphan disease programs that CTI is leading,Fallon concluded.
