Our experts are trained in pharmacology and toxicology, and are constantly scanning the literature on forensically important drugs/chemicals, including emerging drugs/chemicals. This is done as part of our ongoing anticipatory intelligence activities on emerging Chemical and Biological Defense Threat Agents and our Homeland Security Anticipatory Intelligence activities. As part of these intelligence collections, we also analyze potential issues with drug analyst performance, analytical techniques for identifying drugs/chemicals in biological media (e.g., blood, urine, saliva), and challenges associated with analytical quantification and chain of custody challenges.

We develop PBPK models for all sorts of drugs and chemicals for human and agriculturally important species. Contact us for more information.

Our experts have developed a broad array of artificial intelligence for predicting pharmacological and toxicological impacts. We have also developed AI for various military geospatial intelligence applications, and for policy-making in climate change scenarios. Contact us to find out more.

We do; however, we like to keep our scope limited and focused in these types of engagements. We prefer to stay within the realms of pharmacology and toxicology and leadership analyses; however, we may consider others areas if our skills are a good match with the requirement.
