Non Clinical Development


Intelligent non-clinical design expedites development and maximizes clinical flexibility. ICON experts deliver in-depth experience to design and implement cost-effective non-clinical programs with speed and adaptability built-in. Clients benefit from a wealth of experience and knowledge to navigate the optimal path through the development process, for small molecules, large molecules, biologics and medical devices.

Our experts can identify underlying or unresolved safety issues in candidates, even those already in clinical development and resolve them, to maintain the development process. Working in conjunction with our CMC, clinical and regulatory teams helps to ensure that your non-clinical program is fully integrated.
