Pre-IND to First-In Human

We developed a great working partnership with Deepa Deshpande, founder of Universal Regulatory Inc. Deepa’s dedication to our project was quickly evident. She successfully and in record time assisted us in getting IND approval for a critical program, and also managed our ex-US regulatory matters. Deepa is extremely knowledgeable about regulatory laws in US and ex-US and a highly competent professional. Her ability to strategize, pay attention to detail, and creatively address regulatory issues, made her a highly valued member of our team. She will do what is necessary to get the project done and on time! We were fortunate to have her working with us and strongly recommend her.
