  1. The first 1 hour of consulting is free. During this meeting we will discuss details of the project, estimate the level of effort and assess time required for the project completion.

  2. We provide services for a different tiered rate or Project basis. The rate will be determined based on time, labor, software, computer and other factors involved. The rate will be discussed with the Investigators prior starting the service.
  3. The drug discovery and screening project demanding significant computer time spanning weeks to months. In this case, we choose a project basis rather hourly rate which is expected to be high cost.

  4. The drug discovery projects normally demand significant expertise and intellectual input, please consider the project in-part as under collaborative project work terms.

  5. If the CCSR is involved in planning, designing, analysis and/or writing for your project, please consider us working on your project to be a co-author on the publication.

  6. If the CCSR is involved in intellectual input, designing, and writing for your grant project, please consider including Co-Investigator on the grant application.
