I am a highly motivated DABT certified toxicological pathologist, toxicologist and project manager with almost 10-years international early stage experience in CRO, pharmaceutical industry and R&D. My expertise represents Phase I risk and toxicological assessments, in the following therapeutic areas: dermatology, ophthalmology, respiratory diseases, carcinogenesis, cardiovascular, irradiation, and medical devices. I work within multidisciplinary matrix environments with strong interpersonal skills in order to lead and evaluate in-house/outsourced safety studies in order to defend Phase I data to EU, US and Japanese regulatory authorities. I am well organized, proactive, self-motivated, efficient, disciplined, committed to life-long learning and effective communicator with a strong work ethic. My leadership experiences are team building, developing others, able to motivate and convince others especially when standing alone.
