Talaris Advisors Attracts Veteran Team of Strategic Drug Development Managers
Date:2/22/2010

Biotech leaders enable Talaris’ capacity to deliver unprecedented, cross-functional expertise for all phases of drug development.

(PRWEB) February 22, 2010 -- In a move that forms one of biotech's most experienced strategic drug development groups, a team of veteran industry executives has joined Talaris Advisors, strengthening the company's capacity to provide expertise for all phases of drug development. Talaris works with biotech managers, companies and investors to optimize their use of capital and maximize exit outcomes for drug development programs.

Led by Mark J. Pykett, Chief Executive Officer, the Talaris management team has added the following industry veterans: Noel Cusack, PhD, Senior Vice President Nonclinical Development; Susan Flint, Senior Vice President Drug Development; Mark R. Hurtt, MD, Chief Medical Officer; Richard Thorn, PhD, Senior Vice President CMC; and James Weston, Senior Vice President Regulatory Affairs and Quality.

"Real strategic drug development expertise is determined by a team's insight and ability to accelerate milestones when taking a project through a wide range of regulatory scenarios and by creating a range of exit options based on the commercial and medical value of the assets. Our clients and investors are excited by Talaris’ expansion because it confirms our ability to provide this level of expertise and deftly address the complexities of drug development particularly in the current environment,” comments Mark J. Pykett, Talaris CEO. "Each new manager is a distinguished leader who has an average of 30 years of experience, in addition to having important networks and relationships to provide the best performance outcomes for drug compounds and investors."

By any measure, the drug development industry is challenged by the escalating cost and time it takes to develop drugs combined with increasingly complex and challenging regulatory, reimbursement and financing environments. Biotech leaders are working hard to find ways to improve both efficiency and effectiveness in drug development without losing key drivers for innovation. Biotech companies and investors engage Talaris to avoid the typical ramp-up, wind-down or carrying costs associated with drug development management while delivering integrated risk and cost optimized development programs.

The Talaris management team is composed of recognized leaders whose expertise spans the continuum of all key development disciplines: non-clinical, regulatory, medical, clinical operations, manufacturing and quality.

The industry veterans enhance Talaris’ capacity to manage projects strategically and successfully, having managed hundreds of development programs, clinical trials and regulatory submissions. In their careers with companies such as Pfizer, DuPont, Baxter and others, the team has taken over 30 products through to the market.
