The department is charged with conducting all regulated, small-molecule biological testing in the service of R & D. The scientists working in this department are organized into project teams managed by 8 project leaders.
The role of project leader is supported by company scientists; they launch projects based on existing models. These projects represent a large portion of research studies (up to 50), spanning from a few months to several years.
The studies consist of well-defined sequences, tasks and benchmarks. The situation is complex because of the large number of tasks and the fact that they must rely on studies supervised by other departments or by external research organizations.
