AFT Pharmaceuticals has a high-calibre internal R&D team. However, pharmaceutical R&D cannot be done in isolation from other experts in the field
It is, by its very nature, a collaborative exercise.
So we partner with a variety of Australasian and international experts to assist in our R&D programme.
- specialist clinical trial companies across New Zealand Australia, Europe, US, and the Middle East
- academic institutions
- scientific consultants, for example, toxicology and PK-PD experts
- data management providers and statisticians
- NGOs who assist with Orphan drug prioritisation
Central government can act as a partner also. For example, AFT Pharmaceuticals was fortunate enough to receive a Technology Development Grant from the New Zealand government (2012) which has assisted with meeting the costs of some key clinical trial work as well as a number of other R&D expenses.
