What's your view on the industry?
"The pharma industry is about to undergo big changes to succeed with innovation, big data use, new technology and overcome the post approval change hurdle.
This can be done by close cooperation between regulatory authorities and pharma companies. I think it will be very important to work together as a team to benefit the patient."
Why do you work in this business?
"I work in the pharma industry because I want to contribute to innovation and bring new drugs to the market for the benefit of patients. To ensure this, it is very important to guard the license to operate by complying to authority regulations. The pharmaceutical quality system (PQS) is key to compliance and to have a flexible and agile company. Therefore, it is crucial to simplify the PQS and optimize the way we work."
