Corporate Sponsorship

The Tufts Center for the Study of Drug Development invites you to become a Tufts CSDD Corporate Sponsor and support our critical mission of providing data-driven analysis and strategic insight to improve the efficiency and productivity of pharmaceutical development.

Tufts CSDD relies on the support of its corporate sponsors to help cover operating expenses and support non-sponsored research studies, such as our highly-cited series of papers on the cost of pharmaceutical R&D. Note that Tufts CSDD receives no financial support from Tufts University and is required to be self-supporting. That is why corporate support is vital.

Tufts CSDD is the only independent, academic, non-profit research center with a commitment to assessing the economic, scientific, political, and legal issues that affect the development of new drugs and biologics. For over forty years, Tufts CSDD has advocated on behalf of initiatives that advance the cause of pharmaceutical innovation. Because our work is objective, scholarly, and rigorously scrutinized, it is frequently cited, and extensively utilized by pharma companies, regulatory authorities, government entities, and academic leaders worldwide.

Tufts CSDD is an influential voice on issues involving pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical innovation. No other entity does what we do.  Our current and projected research agenda focuses on topics that are critical to industry performance and operations. Our value-added lies in our reputation for scholarship and independence, which allows us to bring together and collaborate with a diverse group of drug companies to obtain the data used in our benchmarking and other studies. It is also why the U.S. Congress, regulatory bodies in the U.S. and abroad, and the multinational drug industry rely on our research findings to understand the demands of pharmaceutical innovation and to inform policy decisions.

Corporate sponsors receive generous discounts on various Tufts CSDD programs and services, such as our highly acclaimed annual Postgraduate Course in Clinical Pharmacology, Drug Development and Regulation, our bi-monthly Tufts CSDD Impact Report subscriptions, and more.
