MedEngine, founded in 2014, bridges medical science with business. We provide expert scientific research, fully customized digital and traditional communications, tailored medical affairs, and advisory services to health-tech and pharmaceutical businesses.

Our adept team combines academic expertise with industry know-how and entrepreneurial drive. Diversity, attention to detail and agility are our strongest assets, and we move nimbly from endeavor to endeavor—be it a multi-year research project, scientific advisory for the commercialization phase of a drug, or conceptualization for a health-tech startup. With every project our project managers apply the highest scientific standards and carry out the entire process—from the first idea to the final publications—while our communications department provides clear and precise content and brilliant professional graphics and design.

Regardless of the product or the premise, the end-result provides our customers with the tools, knowledge and support they need to thrive in the global health and medical marketplace.
