Life Sciences Consulting and Specialized GxP Talent


Trust the sourcing power of USDM Life Sciences to find just the right staff for your business needs.

USDM is a leading consulting firm with a 23-year streak in successful project support for global pharmaceutical, medical device, and biotechnology companies.

We source top talent in the life sciences industry to provide unmatched knowledge and expertise in GxP, including Good Laboratory Practice (GLP), Good Clinical Practice (GCP), Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP), and Good Automated Manufacturing Practice (GAMP/GAMP 5). 

USDM understands the importance of proactive measures to develop, validate, and oversee your projects, products, and services. We know that it requires a significant investment in tools, systems, and continuous updates. The responsibility of balancing scope, cost, and quality can be overwhelming if your teams don’t have the knowledge or industry experience to keep things running smoothly.

The integrated GxP compliance approach used by USDM aims to achieve remarkable cost savings for your organization through innovative system development methodologies, progressive risk mitigation, and enhanced operational efficiency.

As your organization adds Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications to its platform and the complexity and velocity of releases intensifies, be sure you’re seeing a return on investment. Outsource to USDM for SaaS validation and ongoing maintenance and let your full-time employees find greater job satisfaction by focusing on the work they really want to do.

USDM Life Sciences Consulting Business Models

We offer comprehensive GxP technology, regulatory compliance, and quality management services delivered in the business model of your choice:

  • Staff augmentation: gets you the industry’s top talent for your projects. Ideal for when you don’t want to hire a full-time employee for a short-term assignment. We have the candidate pool and sourcing power to properly staff your projects. 
  • Managed staffing: takes over the management of an existing team in your organization. A dedicated lead addresses the team’s needs, issues, and concerns and relieves you of the day-to-day administrative tasks. 
  • Consulting and professional services: supports clearly defined projects with a scope, timeline, and budget. With well-defined service level agreements (SLAs), your project will be completed on time and on budget with mutually agreed-upon deliverables. 
  • Managed services: saves money and mitigates regulatory risk by managing your GxP compliance. For one IT system or many, we hire and manage the team, establish processes and procedures, and deliver results while you focus on other priorities.

For example, a leading life sciences supply chain software vendor wanted to scale validation capabilities without hiring full-time employees. They engaged with USDM for on-demand staff augmentation. USDM provided a team of validation engineers, validation analysts, business analysts, and project managers to support the effort. This trusted partnership enabled 50% faster validation time and a 50% decrease in validation costs.
