Southampton University in the UK provided both general training in obstetrics and gynaecology and later specialist infertility experience while working on the early in vitro fertilization programme. After completing specialist training in reproductive medicine in Sheffield University under Professor Ian Cooke, in depth clinical and academic experience was gained in the University of Bristol initially working with the late Professor Michael Hull. Having established an international reputation in the field of reproductive medicine, an opportunity presented to join Merck Serono International increasingly focused on innovative clinical research. Although working in the Pharmaceutical industry, it has been possible to maintain broad academic recognition for instance by multiple presentations and a visiting professorship in the University of Warwick, UK. Following the switch to Pharma a series of excellent opportunities made it possible to gain wide experience leading to the current position of head of global medical affairs.
Based in the Ferring Pharmaceuticals corporate headquarters in St Prex, Switzerland this role heads the Global Medical Affairs function.
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.
