Welcome to J-STAR Research, Inc.
Our mission is to help pharmaceutical small molecule R&D programs succeed in all phases of development.
Founded in 1996, J-Star Research has assembled one of the most talented and experienced chemical process teams in the industry.
Contract Services & Capabilities
J-Star Research offers a wide range of small molecule chemistry capabilities and technologies, including:
Process Chemistry Research & Development
The management team and staff at J-STAR have extensive experience in pharmaceutical process research and development that spans many decades of practical, hands on expertise. Clients seeking to improve troublesome steps in a process, reduce the cost of goods by removing expensive or poorly performing steps, or re-design an entire route for one of their potential products or key intermediates, will find value added input at the chemistry level from the team at J-STAR.
Drug Product Development
With the ability to develop both Drug Substance (DS) and Drug product (DP) under the same umbrella, our team enjoys a synergism absent in most CROs. The ability to bridge the DS/DP interface is a major competitive advantage in our ability to shorten development timeline and improve ruggedness of the DP process.
cGMP Intermediate & API Production
Once a practical synthetic route has been demonstrated and the critical process research required for scale-up has been performed, J-STAR can then provide API prepared under cGMP guidelines to support Phase I human clinical trials. This is typically done after supplying material for GLP toxicology studies.
