As Dynamic as It Is Demanding

Initial human data are a critical development milestone on the journey from lab to life.

For more than 25 years, our specialized Early Phase team has been dedicated to tailoring solutions for navigating this challenging phase of clinical development.


Full Service Tailored Solutions, from Start to Finish


From first-in-human to drug-drug interaction, from renal/hepatic impairment to proof-of-concept studies, we’re able to conduct any preclinical, Phase I to Phase IIa studies including: first-in-human (FIH), proof-of-concept, bioavailability/bioequivalence (BA/BE), drug-drug interaction (DDI), organ impairment, thorough QT (TQT), biosimilar, and numerous pharmacokinetic (PK), single ascending dose/multiple ascending dose (SAD/MAD) studies.


We also have robust experience with an array of investigational products (IPs), including those of biological origin, and with multiple delivery methods. In addition, we have access to specific patient populations including Japanese, Chinese, and patients who are obese or elderly.

Flawless Execution and Planning for What Comes Next

We take an evolved, multi-disciplinary approach to Early Phase clinical development. We rigorously focus on operational excellence but are able to engage experts in product development strategy, value creation, subject/patient access and other disciplines to support your Early Phase planning.





The Unique Syneos Health Collaboration Model

Our strategic approach to Phase I research includes obtaining patient insights earlier in the clinical development process. We’ve developed three unique collaboration models that promote partnership with select investigators and their patients to motivate participation and engagement, while incorporating experienced staff and facilities for effective study oversight and execution.


Model 1: Partnership and Shared Tasks

  • Certain components are conducted at the sub-investigator site, such as recruiting and screening, while others are conducted at our Phase I unit using our staff with the sub-investigator present.


Model 2: Divide and Conquer

  • A portion of the study is conducted at our collaborator’s site and the balance at our Phase I unit in addition to any CRO services.


Model 3: Out-Patient Study Network

  • Delivering site feasibility, selection and management, and investigator support for study conduct and any peripheral CRO services.


First-Patient Insights, Faster

Our strategic approach to Phase I research includes obtaining patient insights earlier in the clinical development process . Our experience provides the services and solutions you need for your trial to succeed, whatever the therapy area.
