Technical Capabilities

Enable Life Sciences offers a wide array of technical capabilities within the life sciences space – by virtue of operating on a flexible project team structure composed of highly qualified and experienced independent consultants.

Project teams are assembled on a customized basis, based on the specific project needs of our clients. Our flexible project-staffing model allows us to engage subject matter experts on a case-by-case basis, per the unique needs of each project.

In addition to its ability to assemble customized and highly qualified project teams, Enable Life Sciences also has access to the following Core Research Facilities (CRFs) within the state of Massachusetts. These Core Research Facilities (CRFs), engaged on a fee-for-service model, allow us to access a wide array of scientific instrumentation, technicians, and subject matter experts.

Some areas of our technical capabilities are mentioned below, with more being added constantly. Please reach out to us for a customized project proposal.
