Our Story, Our Mission 

Biotechs are the driving force behind new therapies that will cure disease and transform quality of life – but 1 in 3 clinical trials will fail for reasons unrelated to efficacy or safety. We started Auxilius after hundreds of conversations with experienced Chief Science Officers and CFOs who have learned (the hard way) that clinical R&D is about more than science.

Often overnight, science-led organizations become businesses — businesses with outsourced vendors, large budgets, operational complexity, and evolving capital needs. Roles need to change. Financial processes put in place. Organizations must mature. And yet it’s common to ignore financial maturity in pursuit of milestones.

If we want to combat rising prescription drug costs, we have to start at the beginning. We believe that costs matter — even in clinical development. We believe that Biotechs can bring drugs to market quickly and cost effectively. We believe that small and mid-sized Sponsors really can have it all — it just takes the right tools.

We believe

  • Biotechs should have the same control, insight, and rigor as Top 20 Pharma
  • Sponsors deserve tools (in all parts of the org.) built to handle the complextiy of clinical trials
  • Costs matter. To control drug costs, we have to start at the beginning
  • Biotechs can bring drugs to market quickly, and cost effectively.
  • Science matters, but trial outcomes depend on more than science alone
  • Science is inherently unpredicable, but budgets don’t need to be.

We’re ready to make better financial management part of the cure.
