I’m passionate about helping pharma/biotech companies develop solutions that are problem-focussed, customer-oriented, and pragmatic to deploy. This is an ever-changing challenge as new consumer, regulatory, scientific, and technology trends are shifting the market and competitive environment. Novasecta understands this context and tailors each engagement to fit its client’s situation”
