Pharmakey LLC Profile

Pharmakey LLC is a pharmaceutical development company based in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina.

The successful progression of a new drug, from candidate selection through clinical trials, is greatly dependent on making the right choices early in development. Our goal is to help you make the correct scientific and regulatory decisions the first time, and then execute the development plan that best suits your product and timelines. To achieve this, Pharmakey utilizes in-house knowledge and an extensive network of contract resources to bring custom-fit pharmaceutical solutions to each project. We deliver regulatory and development success, from preclinical stage through marketing application for new drug products.
