Research & Development

Intensive Support for Each Stage
of Your Project’s Growth.

From collaboration to innovation to delivery, IQ Florida assists companies in the development of value-driven life science products through the execution of bench-to-bedside research.

Working with internal and external research teams, our approach is to utilize subject matter experts to develop and drive measurable strategies that will allow companies to gain valuable insights and accelerate their product to market.

Marketplace obstacles in front of entrepreneurs are vast. Increased developmental costs, regulatory challenges, technology changes and intellectual property protection all slow product development. IQ Florida recognizes the nuances of these barriers and is prepared to collectively guide companies through them at a rapid pace.

IQ Florida is also deeply knowledgeable of the global forces shaping healthcare and life sciences. To that end, our understanding of healthcare reform, the aging population, digital medicine, big data and population health uniquely qualifies us to represent and direct partners in their research and development of next-generation solutions.

Clinical Validation

Testing & Feedback that Drives Marketplace Delivery.

Capitalizing on the clinical research expertise of Florida Hospital, the University of Central Florida and other leading Florida healthcare organizations, IQ Florida is strongly positioned to engage partners in a validation process to scrutinize new health care-related products and accelerate time to market.

The process starts at the “bench” with basic research, in which scientists study disease at the molecular and cellular levels, then progresses to the clinical level, or the patient’s “bedside.”

This “bench-to-bedside” approach in translational research is actually a two-way street. Basic scientists provide clinical researchers with new patient care tools to assess through clinical trials, and clinical researchers make novel observations about the nature and progression of disease that often stimulate basic scientists’ investigations.

The combined efforts of scientists, researchers, and physicians make IQ Florida's research platform a truly interdisciplinary approach to improving lives through innovation that leads to protocol and product discoveries and ultimately cures.
