Regulatory Support

Bringing new drugs to the market has always been a challenge. With modalities like biologics or cell and gene therapies, the regulatory pathways have become even more complex. Often, these pathways need to be designed and discussed early in the development process with regulatory bodies.

At Evotec, we understand the requirements for successfully bringing a new drug to market from both scientific and regulatory perspectives. We have everything you need for discovery, development, and regulatory success, all under one roof.

How We Can Help

We can assist you in developing a seamless and straightforward strategy for your product by guiding you through the IND submission process. This includes arranging meetings with regulatory authorities and providing consultation, as recommended, to offer you a strategic view.

Our global regulatory affairs team manages your projects with the same level of care and dedication as our internal proprietary R&D projects. We treat your project as if it were our own.

Working alongside your experts, we prepare the most effective and applicable strategy, while taking care of your regulatory submissions. We are by your side when it comes to preparing and facilitating the necessary meetings with regulators, ensuring an agile, flexible, and adaptable approach

All Modalities

We provide comprehensive assistance, profound understanding, and expert direction for a wide spectrum of modalities, encompassing small molecules, monoclonal antibodies (mAbs), oligonucleotides, and cutting-edge advancements like cell and gene therapy. Our services extend to aiding you in delineating the orphan status of your product and facilitating an expedited and incentivized development and approval process for medical products addressing significant unmet needs.


Our Regulatory team can provide comprehensive support throughout your entire R&D process, ensuring the integration of a robust regulatory strategy into your program from its inception. Our team offers personalized regulatory strategic input and assistance, starting with a thorough needs analysis and the definition of the target product profile. We continue to support you through health authority meetings and the preparation of complex regulatory submissions.
