Through interdisciplinary research, SRI provides a wide range of biosciences and health services. We integrate all R&D resources necessary to take drugs from initial discovery to Investigational New Drug applications, and conduct basic research in health sciences. We also perform bioinformatics research using computational approaches to address challenges in systems biology, and engineer novel medical and surgical devices.

Contract Research Services

SRI Biosciences offers a broad array of contract R&D services, from in vivo assays to Phase 1 clinical trials.

Drug Discovery and Development

SRI Biosciences conducts drug discovery and development to take drugs from ideas to Investigational New Drug status (Idea to IND and Beyond®). SRI's pipeline has produced several marketed drugs and advanced well over 100 drugs to clinical trials. We are also a leading drug discovery contractor and preclinical development contractor for several government agencies, including the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation.
