We are Smithers Avanza Toxicology Services, a division of Smithers Avanza, a well-financed CRO built around quality operations and scientific expertise. We’ve expanded our scientific team, invested in our technical staff through training with recognized industry expert consultants, and purchased state-of-the-art laboratory equipment. These investments and scientific expertise have advanced Smithers Avanza’s toxicology capabilities. Here’s more about what we’ve done:
Internationally recognized toxicologist, Michael A. Dorato, PhD, DABT, Fellow ATS, now leads our Gaithersburg, Maryland Toxicology Services group. Industry veteran, Steven Godin, PhD, DABT, brings over 30 years of CRO experience in toxicology and vaccine safety studies. Dr. Caitlin J. Murphy, an experienced researcher in developmental and reproductive physiology and toxicology, has joined our scientific team. We now offer kinetically-derived maximum dose (KMD) consultation, through Dr. Shakil Saghir, a recognized industry expert.
We retained globally recognized toxicology consultants, Dr. Stephen B. Harris and Dr. Mary Jeanne Kallman to review our operations, provide refresher training, and enhance our scientific expertise. We hired industry veteran, Mr. Jim Hall, to lead our formulations group; quality toxicology studies start with successful dose preparations.
We’ve purchased state-of-the-art laboratory equipment to streamline our operations. We’ve established a leading animal welfare program in the nonclinical CRO industry, and we have a strong track record of regulatory compliance and a well-documented history of on-time reporting.
