Why I'm a JPAL

Motivated to learn about innovative ideas involving pharmaceutical, consumer, or medical device products.

Bio

US trained physician (MD), medical school at Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia and Internal Medicine residency at University of Maryland in Baltimore. I was a physician partner in an internal medicine private practice for ~5 years before joining the pharmaceutical industry. I am currently in my 18th year in pharma. All my experience has been in pharmacovigilance/medical safety with experience in all therapeutic areas. I have been in J&J for almost 8 years as Therapeutic Area Safety Head for Immunology (2010 – 2016) and currently Therapeutic Area Safety Head for Oncology (since Jan 2017).
