Why Janus?


Janus, the Roman God of beginnings, transitions and gateways, is an apt symbol for the Drug Discovery and Development process: Drug Development proceeds through formal regulatory review gateways such as IND approval and moves through the different phases of development, transitioning from preclinical safety assessment through to clinical trials designed to statistically explore the safety and efficacy of a drug candidate. It also encompasses the less formal, but nonetheless important transitions that make up the many day to day decisions that the process involves. At each stage of development, the generation and review of key data enables smooth transitions from one stage to the next.  

Like Janus looking both backwards and forwards, the ability to look back at data while looking forward and strategizing to achieve the goal is critical to successful development. At Janus Pharmaceutical Consulting, we leverage over 30 years of experience in Discovery through Phase 3 development to facilitate these crucial phase transitions.
