Proven Track Record of Success

Case Study 1: Cell Therapy Organization

GQR established an initial research team for a well-known cell therapy organization. We stayed on through their acquisition and were retained to identify a Research Site Head for the parent company. Our involvement continued as we built out supporting research teams, including Immunology, In Vivo Pharmacology, Biology, and Core Sciences. Additionally, we made hires across Medical Affairs, Alliance Management, Regulatory Affairs, and Quality Systems and Compliance as this biotech moved through development.

Case Study 2: Emerging Oncology Biotech

GQR was retained to secure two key hires: a Head of Clinical Development and a Head of Regulatory Affairs for an emerging oncology biotech. Upon successfully filling both roles, we further partnered with them to deliver 45+ hires over two years and two back-to-back successful INDs. Our hires spanned Preclinical, Translational R&D, CMC and Process Sciences, Regulatory Affairs, Quality Assurance, and Clinical Development and Operations.

Case Study 3: Rare Disease Biotech

GQR supported a rare disease biotech as they prepared for and launched their first commercial asset. Over a three-year period, our team was responsible for 125+ hires across Commercial Field, Commercial Corporate, Regulatory, Quality, Clinical Development and Operations, and CMC/Technical Operations.
