Dr. Susan Bogdanowich-Knipp lauds over twenty-five years in both the large pharma industry and contract research organization with broad experience ranging from pre-formulation through Phase II development for both small and large molecules. Together with Improved Pharma, the capacity for polymorph screeningsalt screening, pre-formulation studies, analytical research, and problem solving expands greatly.

“At Improved Pharma, we are all about helping our clients bring their drugs to market faster,” notes Dr. Pamela Smith, COO of Improved Pharma. “We do that by bringing together experts in the field who have earned a strong reputation as service-oriented scientists. We also are constantly advancing the field of pharmaceutical development with research studies that we then pass along to our clients. This expansion comes at the perfect time, as our business is growing rapidly.”

“I am thrilled to be working again with Dr. Stephen Byrn, as well as Drs. Smith and Cowans,” states Dr. Bogdanowich-Knipp, President and Consultant of Ravine Pharmaceuticals LLC. “We have complementary backgrounds as well as a positive, long-standing working-relationship, which will be highly conducive to solving complex problems for our clients.”
