Interim Clinical Development Director Support

The team at Boyds provides director-level support to early stage biotechs, to oversee and manage their clinical development activities during the translational stage and beyond.

We know that it is becoming increasingly difficult to recruit experienced clinical development professionals into biotech companies at the right time, whilst meeting the ever-changing demands of companies as they flex and grow into the clinical development space.

To support our biotech clients, Boyds has developed a flexible solution which enables us to offer our clinical development expertise to our clients on an interim basis, providing as little or as much time as required.

Our clinical development team has a long track record in designing and planning clinical development programmes, including, writing protocol synopses, convening KOL meetings, liaising with clinical sites across the globe, setting up and managing clinical trials and managing vendors to deliver meaningful data, whilst maintaining tight control of budgets and timelines. Working with biotechs in the UK, across Europe and in the US, we bring in-depth knowledge of clinical pathways and regulatory frameworks to help companies progress their clinical development projects efficiently.

Our experienced clinical team has a breadth of knowledge across many therapeutic areas, and specialises in early phase trials, providing tailored project management support at all stages of a trial, from planning study concepts and identifying KOLs to clinical study delivery.

Working as part of your development team, your Interim Clinical Development Director will lead the early clinical strategy and development plans, coordinate and manage the in-house activities and team as well as working with third parties, providing the strategic input and oversight to manage your clinical trial from start to finish.
