Our Approach to Research
The Tufts Center for the Study of Drug Development (Tufts CSDD) conducts its research by working closely with government regulatory authorities and with drug developers and manufacturers of all sizes in the U.S. and abroad.
Data are collected from the people who create it — pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. They cooperate because they know Tufts CSDD will generate a comprehensive and objective picture of the drug development process, while strictly ensuring that individual company data are not disclosed.
Adhering to stringent methods of quantitative analysis, Tufts CSDD validates its data and develops findings based on rigorous academic standards.
