Experience in the pharmaceutical industry

The pharmaceutical industry was my home for more than nine years. In these years I gained thorough experience and expertise in the development of drugs and medical devices, due-diligences and submissions. In addition, I worked in market access as global project leader in specialized therapeutics.
My major working areas were diagnostic imaging, spezialized therapeutics and radiopharmaceutical drugs as well as the area of vaccine development. As biostatistician I supported clinical studies of phases I to IV and participated in the design of development programmes for new drugs.
I am a free-lance statistician in the area of life sciences since 2007. Experience with respect to 'Good Clinical Practice' and knowledge of all relevant guidelines is an essential prerequisite at SCO:SSiS. Since the first benefit dossier in 2011 I have worked intensely in the area of AMNOG benefit dossiers, was envolved in more than 140 procedures and took part in more than 40 oral hearings.

The conceptual design and analysis of clinical and epidemiological studies as well as the support in the preparation of value dossiers are the challenges of my work, which I take much pleasure in.
