BSc PhD CChem FRSC
I worked for The Wellcome Foundation then GlaxoWellcome until 1996 and co-founded BioFocus plc (now Charles River) in 1998. In 2009 I established an independent consultancy focusing on the search for new medicines and covering all aspects of discovery research and early development. My long-term interest is in new and effective approaches to drug development. With over 30 years of experience in senior posts within the industry, I am able to offer advice in all therapeutic areas, both on strategic and tactical technical issues of compound discovery and compound progression. As a founder of a small biotech, I also have gained insight into the business planning and IPR aspects of getting projects and commercial operations off the ground. My clients have included commercial, academic, institutional and major charitable bodies across Europe, the USA, South Africa, India and the Far East, giving me a wide and international view of the issues and opportunities for both small and larger pharma and biotech ventures to develop innovative and much-needed medicines.
