Covance is a drug development service company that, through unique perspective and precision delivery, has helped bring 49 of the top 50 best-selling drugs on the market today from potential into reality.
Covance works with its pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device clients to help propel these advances. The non-clinical studies we perform and support provide essential safety, efficacy and dosage data that are required before a compound can be studied in humans. At each phase in clinical development, Covance professionals are dedicated to high-quality research that safeguards the interests of the volunteers and patients who participate.
Collectively, we make a difference. Covance’s industry-leading central laboratories generate more safety and efficacy data to support drug approvals than any other company. We collaborated with sponsors on more than 90 percent of drugs approved by the FDA in 2018 and most of the novel oncology and rare disease drugs.
Individually, we each make a difference. Behind every assay, behind every source document, behind every data query, is a patient. Whether you are directly involved in study delivery or working in a function that supp...orts the progress of these studies – from animal welfare to investigator payments, from contract management to benefits administration – you contribute to advances in healthcare.
It’s personal to us. When we improve health, we improve lives.
