Biomedical R&D Program Management

Twenty-five years of experience providing scientific, technical, and business analyses for military and federal/civilian customers.

The Leidos Health Life Sciences team oversees a diverse portfolio of biopharmaceutical, medical science, infectious disease, and peer/program review contracts. Our scientists have experience in a broad range of disciplines and areas such as cancer research, vaccine and medical product development, and preventing the global risk from the spread of infectious diseases.

Program/Portfolio Management

We provide comprehensive scientific and business analytical support to biomedical research and development (R&D) program managers and executives, including:

  • Research gap analysis
  • Design and development of new programs
  • Evaluation of research project and product development portfolios
  • Planning and conduct of program reviews
  • Technology life-cycle cost analysis
  • Product development plans
  • Program marketing and communications
  • Policy analysis and development

Strategic Planning

Our experts draw on their insight into the unique business needs of biomedical research organizations to develop appropriate strategic frameworks, and facilitate the planning process to help organizations achieve their goals to include:

  • Enterprise planning and implementation support for new R&D initiatives
  • Laboratory infrastructure planning
  • Scientific competency management
  • Scientific planning meetings and workshops
  • Organizational design

Grants and Contracts Management

We have an in-depth knowledge of the entire DoD grants and contract management process. Our team includes highly skilled scientific writers and editors, as well as full print and visual production capabilities. We have experience supporting Congressional programs from initial development through implementation and sustainability. Our team can provide:

  • Request for Proposal (RFP) development and publication
  • Pre-proposals/proposals receipt management
  • Scientific and programmatic reviewer recruitment and training
  • Peer and programmatic review meeting coordination and summaries
  • Research site visit coordination and support
  • Human use, animal use, and environmental compliance audits
  • Marketing and public affairs communications
  • Grant close-out support
  • Post-award management and scientific review of annual/progress reports


In an effort to streamline our processes, we provide the option of conducting meetings through ORION, a Leidos proprietary web-based review tool developed in response to our customers’ needs. ORION is used to coordinate pre-meeting, at-meeting, and post-meeting logistical and technical needs and allows reviewers access to documents through a centralized, secure web site. Reviewer surveys are completely customizable, allowing us to tailor reviewer input specific to the drug, device, vaccine, medical practice, or other grant proposal being considered. Additionally, ORION is used to conduct online virtual meetings, providing an opportunity to meet when travel costs or participant schedules are prohibitive to meeting in person.
