Our background in life sciences research has trained us to be problem solvers. We have designed and led complex research projects involving multiple world-class research institutions and have experience managing a diverse staff from high school interns to PhD scientists.
Building on that experience and success, we have applied our training to management consulting in the public and private sectors. We have spent years working with and for government research organizations in the civil and military health markets.
Regardless of the project, the principles for effective management are the same. We can help you plan, implement, and manage your projects to help you achieve your goals in an efficient, professional, and cost-effective manner.
Research & Development
Our team has significant experience in all phases of research and project development, including:
- Generation of Initial Concepts
- State-of-the-Science Reviews
- Data Acquisition & Security
- Big Data Analysis
- Market Viability Assessments
- Supervising Research Programs
- Design & Manage Multi-Institutional
- Research Projects
- Publishing & Presenting Research Results
- Performing Analyses of Alternatives
Our team has successfully managed entire research programs from start to finish, worth millions of dollars, and we have the experience to step in and provide support at any point in the research process.
Since many elements of a research program require specialist support, it is often more cost-effective to bring in outside experts to perform specific tasks on an as-needed basis rather than trying to hire and manage staff for the duration of a project. One of Lucent’s strengths is an extensive network of PhD-level professionals that can temporarily fill any role on a project.
Writing & Editing
For most of us, writing & editing are skills that takes years of continuous practice to master, and not everyone has the time or inclination to learn how to write well. Writing is a skill we have honed over many years writing in a variety of formats, contexts, and for a diverse group of clients.
We have personally published dozens of peer-reviewed articles, abstracts, and book chapters. Over the years, we have reviewed and edited hundreds of reports, abstracts, and manuscripts for academic, government, and private sector organizations.
What sets Lucent apart is our approach. While we use a collaborative writing and review process, we do not load a contract with staff and charge by the hour. We provide a reasonable cost estimate for each project and staff that project with the necessary resources to ensure success. Our clients get the benefit of multiple expert writers for each project at one, low cost.
