The LifeSciHub Small/Micro-Business Community

The LifeSciHub Community is comprised of independent expert small, micro businesses. These experts have intentionally decoupled from the corporate ladder, usually at the Director or VP level, in order to practice their expertise as small, independent businesses. The range of expertise is vast- every aspect of drug development requires highly specialized skills, and the LifeSciHub small business community has them in abundance: biometrics, clinical operations, patient engagement, produce launch, CMC, supply chain, clinical contracts, regulatory, pharmacovigilance, computational drug modeling and simulation, RWE, HEOR, medical writing, eTMF. Some “solopreneurs” seeing process or technology gaps, have even created software products to further expedite innovation.
