What I do at MMV:
As Chief Medical Officer, I’m responsible for medical and safety issues relating to MMV’s drugs in development.
Why I work at MMV:
MMV is the best place to be for a physician working in antimalarial drug development. This position allows me to work not only on all projects in development for the treatment of malaria, but also on projects aimed at elimination and eradication of malaria worldwide. Through the successful registration of new drugs it allows me to have a real impact on the patients affected by malaria.
More about me:
My expertise is in antimalarial drug development, which I gained by working in the pharmaceutical industry for 15 years. Before joining MMV in May 2007, I worked at GlaxoSmithKline, from 2001 to 2007 as Director of their Diseases of the Developing World, R & D Department in the United Kingdom. Prior to that I worked from 1996 to 2001 with SmithKline Beecham International in Paris as Medical Adviser for Africa and from 1992 to 1996 with Rhône-Poulenc Rorer Doma in Paris as a Clinical Research Manager in charge of a Phase III study with artemether, an antimalarial drug considered at that time as promising. I’m a Medical Doctor by training and completed my studies and residency in Paris.
