Your Consultant: Goran Westerberg, PhD, Associate Professor, MTOPRA
Over the past 30 years (and 600 clinical trials) in the Pharmaceutical Industry, I have matured a broad experience in the early clinical development domain. Starting with 10 years in the Contract Research world, I moved into Pharma in 1995 working in Sweden, the UK, Italy, Japan and the US.
My main interest and experience lies in pulling compounds out of Discovery and pushing them into Development; overall, I have taken more than 30 new compounds into the clinic across most therapeutic areas (CNS, metabolic & respiratory diseases, anti-infectives, oncology, haematology, ophthalmology, gynaecology/obstetrics, urology and cardiovascular).
Specific experience of Clinical Pharmacology and Phase I clinical studies including First-Time-in-Human, PK/PD, Regulatory Affairs, Toxicology, cPoC/Phase II, Pharmaceutical Development, GxP, Orphan Designation, European Commission funding, radioactivity, imaging.
