Our History

In 2008, Chamow & Associates was established by Dr. Steven Chamow, a recognized expert in monoclonal antibodies and therapeutic proteins. Steve has over 35 years of experience in the biotechnology industry with two decades at Genentech, Scios, Abgenix, Genitope and Intradigm. During his career, he contributed to the development of four marketed biologics – Avastin®, Natrecor®, Vectibix® and Zadaxin® – and played a significant role in Genentech’s first recombinant Fc fusion protein and monoclonal antibody clinical programs.


Recognizing that the biotechnology industry was progressing toward a model of outsourcing product development services, Steve founded Chamow & Associates to help companies effectively apply the outsourcing model and move efficiently through all phases of biopharmaceutical product development. Over the years, he has built a team of over 30 subject matter experts who bring extensive industry experience in specific disciplines. The team collaborates with clients to plan and manage development activities once a client identifies a product candidate and decides to pursue clinical development.

In January of 2021, Chamow & Associates became a part of Alira Health, a leading international healthcare and life sciences advisory firm. Steve announced, “We are excited and honored to become part of the Alira Health network, and to join a talented team of experts with a complementary mission. Becoming part of the Alira Health family will allow Chamow & Associates to further build our team and greatly expand our work with clients. By adding CMC expertise and advisory to Alira Health’s suite of services, we have a tremendous opportunity to provide comprehensive support to meet the needs of pharmaceutical companies at any stage of the development process.” Read the full press release here
