Why I'm a JPAL

I'm a JPAL because I'm passionate about helping enable the successful development of innovative and transformative technologies. Bringing these technologies to fruition, which have the potential to impact the trajectory of patient health care, requires a close partnership between regulators, academics, scientists, inventors, industry, clinicians and patients. Playing a role, however large or small, in advancing those partnerships, to potentially impact the trajectory of patient health care drives my work as a scientist and member of the JPAL ecosystem.

Fun fact:

I am an avid scuba diver, and often plan holidays around my "bucket list" of dive locations.
