Consultancy

  • Almost 7 years industry research & development experience, including roles as project manager, team lead, laboratory management, consultant, reviewer and system matter expert.
  • Project management – Industry experience in managing a project involving the characterisation of raw material API. Research conducted in conjunction with the PMBRC trough an Enterprise Ireland Innovation Partnership.
  • Process development/scale-up – Experience in co-ordinating between R&D and Manufacturing departments in the introduction of new products and process scale-up. Process development lead on the introduction of new Infra-red curing technology platform.
  • Analytical development expert – system matter expert in researching and designing analytical methodologies for raw material, intermediate and finished product testing. Also designed extractable/leachable studies for container/closure systems.
  • Drug/Polymer Formulation – Industry experience involving the research and design of prospective oral dose formulations for generic drug products. Formulation types included suspensions, powders and liquids. This involved assessing a number of preservative systems, buffering systems, bulking agents and API/excipient solubility. Characterisation of these formulations also entailed physicochemical tests such particle size analysis, viscosity and correlation with dissolution profiles.
  • Technical reviewer - performed technical review and sign off on analytical methods, validation protocols and validation dossiers prior to implementation and filing with regulatory/licensing bodies.
