Our services are eligible for the Australian R&D Tax Incentive scheme. This scheme allows eligible companies to claim up to a 43.5%* rebate on qualifying R&D spend.

By using the Australian Clinical Trial Notification (CTN) scheme we can assist you fast-track your clinical trial, reducing the time and cost associated with filing an Investigational New Drug (IND) application.

Australian (TGA) clinical trial start-ups are known for being of exceptional quality, faster than US (FDA) trials and, due to government support and tax rebates are very cost competitive.

Studies are initiated on local human research ethics committee (HREC) approval, which occurs typically within six weeks of submission.
