About Southern Research Institute
WHAT YOU LOVE
We love being purpose-driven. We are eager to make significant contributions that directly improve quality of life. We love providing opportunities for our employees to grow and ensuring they maintain a good work/life balance. We celebrate all types of problem solving. We thrive when we act as a catalyst for change in all areas that we serve in their respective communities.
WHAT YOU DO WELL
We are cultivating Birmingham’s biotech scene with first-rate talent through cutting-edge science. We are great at translating research into innovation that impacts our world. We are smart, creative people always looking for a better way forward. We are excellent collaborators making our partnerships seamless. We are more boutique than our competition because of our deep expertise and agility.
WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS
People need both academic and CRO (contract research organization) because they need more than basic lab-for-hire services. They need both the guidance and knowledge base to help move their projects forward and to find answers where they currently do not exist. More end users, specifically Alabamians, need to trust the research and innovations being made in biotech.
WHAT YOU CAN BE PAID FOR
We secure funding from our customers, sponsors, and policymakers for our research and go-to-market strategies, but we become more nationally relevant when we narrow our focus in on our impact and humanization of scientific discoveries and breakthroughs.
