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 with the benefit for the patient in focus."
Why do you work in this business?
"I work in the pharma industry, because I want to contribute to innovation and bringing new drugs to the market for the benefit for the patients.
