Medical Affairs

As innovation transforms the healthcare landscape, science and data are becoming the foundation for pharma to meet its obligations to patients and customers—and realize commercial opportunities.

Life science companies require input from external clinical advisors such as healthcare providers like physicians, pharmacists, and nurses – vital sources of medical information who can significantly impact strategic decisions.

The profession has forged a new role as a primary strategic pillar of life science organizations alongside clinical research and clinical development commercial and market access functions.

Biotal supports our clients to attract and hire professionals within these primary roles.


Commercial Operations

The life sciences industry is experiencing unprecedented success in bringing new products to market. With approvals of new drugs at an all-time high, the need to accelerate market positioning is a race for many companies.

A robust clinical profile is no longer enough to ensure a distinctive launch in increasingly crowded drug markets. Life science organizations need to launch products and create brand trust in the marketplace to be successful.

The team at Biotal helps life science companies maximize their commercial value by connecting relevant expertise to drive promotion and sales, allowing deeper market access.

We have a successful record of supporting the life sciences market by enabling our clients to access high-performing talent to deliver impact and drive forward the commercial goals of their product launch, delivery, and sales.

Research and Development (R&D)

In 2020, research and development spending in the pharmaceutical industry totaled nearly 200 billion U.S. dollars globally.

R&D is an integral function of the Life Sciences industries, enabling global scientific progress. Advancing technologies and innovation with the R&D sector mean an increasing demand for highly skilled professionals in this field.

The R&D landscape is changing.

A recent report by PwC indicated that the Life Sciences companies are facing unprecedented challenges globally and must have the scientific, commercial, and operational capabilities necessary to thrive in an increasingly complex health care environment and emerge stronger.

As drug development becomes more involved, there is a greater need for access to both new expertise and technologies. (KPMG)


Clinical Operations

Clinical trials are a crucial element of the drug development process. The clients we partner with are at the forefront of clinical research to assess the safety and efficacy of new drugs entering the market.

The clinical diagnostics market was valued at approximately USD 63,305 million in 2020, and it is expected to reach USD 93,851 million by 2026.

Since 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has bore increased funding and an increasing number of testing, boosting the overall market growth.

For instance, in September 2020, the National Institutes of Health, United States, announced its plan to give USD 129.3 million of funding to several companies in the sector to advance clinical studies.

The demand and market boom requires highly skilled experts to facilitate clinical developments - Biotal’s market experience means we can quickly and effectively assess candidates across the clinical research space.
Our expert clinical staffing experience gives us a unique understanding of the industries, trial phases, and skills requirements required within the clinical sectors.
