Egnyte and Lorenz Life Sciences Announce Integration Supporting Regulatory Document Management

May 7, 2024 – LORENZ Life Sciences and Egnyte today announced an integration in the upcoming LORENZ docuBridge 24.1 release, enabling customers to easily use documents created and managed within Egnyte for regulatory submissions. With the new connector, LORENZ is closing the loop and allowing seamless integration between Egnyte workflow processes and LORENZ workflow processes.

“Halloran is happy to partner with LORENZ and Egnyte to deliver an effective solution,” said Sheila Gwizdak, Vice President and Head of Consulting at Halloran Consulting Group. “This is an example of a technology integration improving efficiency, maintaining control of critical submission documents, and enabling Halloran to provide high-quality regulatory services to the life science companies we serve.”

This integration provides a seamless system for Egnyte customers to compile content such as preclinical toxicology data, clinical protocols, statistical analyses, and case reports in docuBridge preserving all metadata and without losing data integrity. This eCTD publishing connection is a required step when submitting an Investigational New Drug (IND), New Drug Application (NDA), or Biologics License Application (BLA) to a regulatory agency such as the
Food and Drug Administration. Throughout the process, the companies worked to ensure the support of Inter-Document Hyperlinks to simplify the submission validation and reviewing process.

“Customers will benefit from Egnyte’s robust and secure content management features while leveraging the proven lifecycle management capabilities for submission documents from docuBridge,” said Abhay Kini, director of Life Sciences at Egnyte. “We are excited to launch this critical integration for Egnyte’s Life Sciences customers and we are grateful to the LORENZ team and Halloran Consulting Group for their collaboration on this effort.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

In Memoriam: Laurie Halloran, BSN, MS, Visionary Leader, Passes Away

Newton, MA – The family of Laurie Halloran, along with her colleagues at Halloran Consulting Group, sadly announced the peaceful passing of Laurie on February 29.

Beloved Mother of Three Sons, Wife, Daughter, Aunt, Friend, and Mentor

Laurie Halloran was a revered and beloved mentor and friend to hundreds of leaders across the life sciences industry. As founder of Halloran Consulting Group, Laurie spent her entire career dedicated to sharing best practices and know-how in life sciences to deliver safe and effective products to patients. She started her career as a pediatric ICU nurse and in 1998 was inspired to start a company that helps move new therapies through FDA processes to get them into the hands of patients desperately in need. Since its humble beginnings, Halloran has grown into a thriving consultancy of like-minded experts dedicated to improving human health.

In conjunction with the 25th anniversary of Halloran Consulting Group, Laurie officially stepped into her role as Founder to focus on her life’s passions: family, mentoring, and travel. For more than a decade she mentored and guided a select group of leaders and handed the reigns over to this team so they could advance the company to the next phase of strategic corporate maturity to serve the life science community.

“We are heartbroken with the news of Laurie’s passing. We know that the best way to move forward as a company and community is to be the torch bearers of her dream,” stated Tania Zieja, President, Halloran Consulting Group. “Our leadership team is invested in growing her legacy in honor of her vision and example.”

In February 2023, Laurie joined 20 of her biotech leaders to summit Mount Kilimanjaro raising $1 million to fuel scientific discovery for the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center.

Laurie was recognized numerous times over the years. In November 2023 she was honored as the Boston Business Journal’s Power 50: Movement Makers and as The Women’s Edge, together with its partner The Boston Globe, Top 100 Women-Led Businesses in Massachusetts. In 2018 she was the WBENC Star and won a 2017 Enterprising Women of the Year Award from Enterprising Women Magazine.  In 2015, Laurie was honored by the Boston Business Journal as a Woman of Influence, and the company received a ranking in the INC 500 fastest-growing companies. In 2010, Laurie was selected as one of the 100 Most Inspiring People in Life Science by PharmaVoice.

Prior to her passing, Laurie lectured at BU Medical School and the Tufts Center for Drug Development Post-Graduate program. She was a founding member of MedExec Women, served as an Advisor to the Convergence Forum, and was a Co-Founder and Board member of CRUSH Life Sciences.

Additionally, she previously served on Advisory Board positions at Boston University’s School of Public Health, Lesley University Alumni Advisory Board, & Merck/EMD Serono’s Precision Medicine and the New England Women in Science Executive’s Board of Directors. Laurie held many memberships to professional associations, including the Oncology Nursing Society, Drug Information Association, and the Associates of Clinical Research Professionals.

Laurie earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Russell Sage College and a Master of Science in Management from Lesley University. She was also a Prosci Certified Change Practitioner.

Prior to starting Halloran, Laurie held positions at St. Mary’s Hospital, Albany (NY) Medical Center Hospital, Children’s Hospital (Boston, MA), Trustees of Health and Hospitals (Boston, MA), Medical & Technical Research Associates, Parexel International Corporation, OXiGENE, Inc., and Antigenics, Inc.

Laurie hailed from Troy, NY, where her parents Janice and John Halloran still reside.

Halloran Wins the Life Science Cares Transformative Partnership Award

BOSTON, MA, [JUNE 1, 2023] – Halloran Consulting Group (Halloran) announces they are the winner of the Transformative Partnership Award granted by Life Sciences Cares.

Companies nominated for the award include Collegium Pharmaceuticals, Flagship Pioneering, and Kiniksa.

Laurie Halloran, CEO [left] and Katie McCarthy, Chief Innovation Officer [middle], accepted the award on behalf of Halloran.

The Transformative Partnership Award recognizes corporate philanthropy and volunteer engagement programs resulting from a consistent and dynamic partnership with Life Science Cares and community organizations. All nominees have gone above and beyond to build a culture of giving back to communities in need.

Katie McCarthy stated, “It is an honor for Halloran to be recognized by Life Science Cares. Our team at Halloran is incredibly proud to be part of the collective efforts and is humbled to work alongside Life Science Cares’ nonprofit partners and other corporate partners. We know that, together, our industry can make a positive impact on human health and, with the help of Life Science Cares, also on poverty and inequity.”

During the ceremony, Life Science Cares acknowledged, “Giving back comes through as a recurring calendar appointment for Halloran’s team in both Boston and San Diego. Fueled by the commitment from Laurie Halloran, CEO, and Chief Innovation Officer, Katie McCarthy, activities have included a hygiene products drive, bagged lunch making, laptop and book donations, care package building, cooking dinner for neighbors who experience homelessness, and the collection of 100+ toys for their Holiday Helpers effort. Halloran emphasizes the importance of collective effort and has found different ways for their team to engage based on their preferences—giving time, sharing their talents, or donating dollars or necessities. In 2023, they aim to offer opportunities for their remote workers to get involved and make differences together as well as in their own communities!”

While corporate social responsibility is ingrained in the culture at Halloran, there wasn’t a formal community engagement structure in place until Halloran joined as a corporate partner in 2019, enabling Halloran employees to give back through various volunteer opportunities.

The partnership with Life Science Cares provides collective efforts to enact positive social change by building deep and meaningful relationships with nonprofit partners within our communities.
