Their services cover both individual projects, as well as working exclusively as permanent team members for clients.

Offering expertise on both short and long-term projects, DIL seamlessly blends in as an extension of the client company, offering flexible and integrated services, made to measure solutions, cost-effective and on-time service accelerating drug discovery and development – backed by the assurance of confidentiality.

With all this, DIL enhances and adds value to the client’s research program. DIL is a public listed company delivering reliable services to the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.
