We rapidly synthesized information to inform and support early-stage R&D investment decisions

Client challenge

To validate and challenge scores assigned by internal experts to disease-pathogen pairings in an opportunity assessment matrix

InterPhase Consult solution

Design a 2-part validation process: detailed technical searches to score the pairings according to a refined scoring system and TCs with practising clinicians

700 disease-pathogen pairings in the infectious disease therapy area

4 scores for each pairing across technical feasibility and unmet needs parameters


We refined the scoring on all 4 parameters following detailed desk research and external expert feedback

Our revised scores were fed into the client’s decision support model and were used to help shape R&D investment decisions
