JAY BUDREWICZ ScM, LATg, SRT – Study Director

CELEBRATING 14 YEARS AT CBSET...In his role as a preclinical Study Director, Jay is responsible for a quality system ensuring that safety studies at CBSET are duly designed, conducted, and documented to generate reliable data. As a Scientist II, he manages associate scientists, coordinates study planning, provides technical guidance and performs surgical procedures. Jay himself hosts CBSET client visits as well as telephone and video conferences. He also collaborates with the Business Development team to promote growth and boost revenue.


1: He is a regulatory/scientific expert in preclinical surgical research.

Jay has extensive experience and a publication track record in a wide variety of therapeutic areas including, but not limited to: gastrointestinal diseases, airway and urologic diseases, peripheral artery disease, wound healing, and minimally invasive surgery using robotic-assisted surgical devices. Of note: he routinely collaborates with pharmaceutical and medical device companies to develop animal models to effectively evaluate their technologies for regulatory approval.

2: He has an ScM in Biotechnology.

Jay received his Master of Science (ScM) degree from Brown University's Department of Molecular Pharmacology, Physiology and Biotechnology in May 2017. The Brown University program mandated that Jay not only complete upper-level courses but also conduct research, prepare a written thesis, and present his work as a seminar for the final defense. His thesis involved development of a minimally invasive porcine heart failure model at CBSET. "I was extremely fortunate to be able to conduct my master's degree research at CBSET,'' says Jay, "because CBSET combined sophisticated understanding of industry needs with top notch animal care, surgery, and regulatory science. This experience set me up for success as a Study Director."

3: He is  certified as SRT and LATg.

Jay is experienced in a range of surgeries and has been certified by ASR (Academy of Surgical Research) since September 2014. ASR encourages, fosters, promotes, and advances professional and academic standards, education research, and development in the arts and sciences of experimental surgery. Jay's SRT (Surgical Research Technician) certification qualifies him to perform surgical procedures such as peripheral vessel cannulation, indwelling pump implantation, and subcutaneous implantation. Since April 2012, Jay also has been certified by the AALAS (American Association for Laboratory Science), whose mission is to ensures that researchers care properly for laboratory animals and treat them humanely. Jay holds the highest level of certification (LATg) from AALAS.
