Our longstanding strengths in bioinformatics and biostatistics help clients design studies and protocols that achieve study objectives. And because our experience resides at the intersection of the public and private healthcare sectors, we can help you develop regulatory strategies to maintain compliance, obtain fast-track status for rare disease therapies, and file regulatory submissions.

Emmes collaborates with commercial, government, non-profit, and academic institutions to design and manage insightful clinical studies that impact millions of patients worldwide. From our work with the National Institutes of Health on rare diseases, epidemics and pandemics to our ongoing relationships with biopharmaceutical companies and foundations, we are humbled by the contributions Emmes has made to organizations like yours.
