  • Bert Spilker & Associates
  • "Enhancing Your Meetings with FDA"


    Since receiving his PhD (pharmacology) in 1967, and his MD ten years later, Bert Spilker has focused on ways to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of drug discovery, pharmaceutical development and marketing.

    His management and business skills were developed at four major pharmaceutical companies, and honed through co-founding and building Orphan Medical Inc. from one person to a company with a staff of over 30 employees and 16 drugs in development - all of which he licensed or chose for development. Serving on many boards of directors and scientific advisory boards has added to this experience.

    His knowledge and experience of policy and legislative issues were developed through the above and through his years as Senior Vice President at PhRMA, the pharmaceutical industry's Trade Association.

    The mission of Bert Spilker & Associates (BS&A) is to provide clients with the highest quality, most cost-effective, and timely pharmaceutical consulting services available. To achieve this goal, Bert has assembled a group of over 150 independent associates who are available to assist him in most aspects of drug discovery, drug development and strategy setting. BS&A strives to build long-term relationships with clients based on knowledge of his clients culture, research, products and services.

    Bert Spilker & Associates LLC provides a virtual consulting company that benefits clients in three major ways.

    • Provides the services of world class experts to conduct research, work on a policy or assist with other projects, rather than the junior level staff commonly assigned to work on your project at large consulting corporations. This translates to:
    • - Little or no rework needed by the client

      - Creation of reliable and authoritative reports

      - Rapid turnaround

    • Does not operate with large overheads and passes these savings on to you.
    • Provides backup support for Dr. Spilker and any of the other principals if they should be unavailable to fully meet your needs due to personal events.


    Bert has been a collector of antique keys for many years. He has selected the key as a symbol for BS&A, the consulting firm that unlocks approaches to address problems and opens doors to new opportunities. The key is from the l7th century and is German.
