Join LinkedIn & access Julian’s full profile
To become a highly experienced pharmaceutical professional I have held a series of roles of increasing seniority in clinical care, the pharmaceutical industry and senior management, benefiting from both work experience and extensive training. These roles have included clinical directorship of a large successful IVF unit, academic head of a prestigious university reproductive medicine centre, senior medical director in global clinical development and the global head of a pharmaceutical medical affairs function, which I established de novo. Now I am the global head of R&D and Medical Affairs of Finox Biotech A.G.
Based in the Ferring Pharmaceuticals corporate headquarters in St Prex, Switzerland as the head Global Medical Affairs function, I lead separate teams focused on Fertility, Obstetrics, Urology Oncology, Gastroenterology and Endocrinology. My appointment to this role in 2010 coincided with the establishment of the global medical affairs function, through which I developed the infrastructure and processes to support medical affairs activities globally.
Based in the Ferring Pharmaceuticals corporate headquarters in St Prex, Switzerland this role was the Global Medical Affairs Clinical Scientific lead for Obstetrics & Gynaecology.
Based in the Merck Serono corporate headquarters in Geneva this role focused on proof of concept studies and global registration studies in Fertility and Endocrinology.
This role focused on Reproductive Health Phase 4 research projects globally, publications and organisation and participation of both expert advisory board meetings and international symposia. This position further provided the opportunity to develop pharmocogenomic expertise and contribute towards research strategy.
This role led a large, multidisciplinary team advancing science and clinical practice in reproductive medicine, including research into extreme variations of ovarian response to gonadotrophins during Assisted Reproductive Technology. My research experience included novel interests in translational medicine and medical informatics, receiving extensive funding from multiple sources and leading to multiple presentations, 4 books, 14 book chapters and over 100 articles. A significant academic achievement during this time was the launch of a highly successful MSc course in reproduction and development (www.ReD-MSc.org.uk), which has attracted doctors and scientists from as far a field as Sudan, China, Philippines, India and Saudi Arabia. Broader academic recognition included multiple honorary academic positions such as membership of the editorial boards for Human Reproduction and BJOG: An International Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology.
The Centre for Reproductive Medicine was part of the University of Bristol Division of Obstetrics and Gynaecology standing at the forefront of advancing research and delivering highest standards of clinical practice in reproductive medicine, including a large highly successful ART programme.
Between 2002 and 2004 I was Associate Medical Director for IM&T at the UBHT NHS Trust in UK where I was intimately involved in the contract negotiations to develop an Electronic Patient Record (EPR) for the Pan Bristol and Weston consortium for a population of around 1 million. My success in this process was recognised with my promotion to the EPR management board that oversaw the project. Following a central change of direction with electronic health records by the UK Government, I was invited to act an advisor to the central National Programme for Information Technology.
CTICM was part of a national initiative in the UK to identify and disseminate best practice in the use of computers to support all areas of higher education. CTICM focused on Medicine, Dentistry and Vetinary Medicine.
