Project Management

From proposal development to project close, every project is managed according to project management best practices with you, the client, as a partner in the process.

Project plans are developed collaboratively; our scientific experts work together with you to ensure your project needs are met with budgets, timelines, health status, and cohort numbers optimized. In this process we will balance speed, quality, and price based on your preferences or project demands. A charter will be developed that includes methods and tools that will be used, deliverables, timelines, risks, budget and contact information.

Scientific Program Managers

Our PhD Scientific Program Managers discuss your project goals with you. Scientific Program Managers have hands-on experience breeding and using animal models in research and draw on the necessary scientific disciplines at Taconic Biosciences such as Genetics, Embryology and Veterinary Sciences. They are well equipped to develop an optimal project plan to meet your goals. Through collaborative discussions they develop a Project Charter that ensures optimal project design and defines resources needed to meet cohort goals. The Scientific Program Managers will provide scientific oversight and support to the project management team throughout the project lifecycle.

Project Managers

All of our projects are supported by dedicated Project Managers, many of whom are not only scientists they are also certified Project Management Professionals.
