"Through a series of strategic investments and alliances, we have enhanced our early-stage drug R&D capabilities and gained an impressive array of world-class talent and technologies in genomics, proteomics, biomarkers, and discovery services such as early safety and efficacy testing, in vivo pharmacology and imaging. As a result, Covance now has a comprehensive range of integrated services across the drug R&D continuum that can help clients make faster and more effective decisions about their portfolios."

Discovery & Translational Services will report to Deborah Tanner, Corporate Senior Vice President at Covance; President, Central Laboratory Services and President, Discovery & Translational Services.
