The Power List 2021
Global Technology Strategy & Partnerships Lead, Worldwide Research, Development & Medical, Pfizer Medicinal Sciences; Executive Board Chair, Community for Analytical Measurement Science
Single biggest challenge… A loss of identity and community which is already impacting the funding, perception of our field, leadership development opportunities and innovation focus. This is why in the UK and Ireland we have formed the Community for Analytical Measurement Science (CAMS) which has a core purpose of strategically connecting the community to bring focus and funding around industry innovation challenges which are being delivered at pace by future leaders in our field.
Predictions? An increase in predictive/simulation/modeling approaches to focus experimentation outcomes more efficiently. In addition, there will likely be an increase in approaches describing automation of measurement methods and holistic measurement laboratory strategies as a result of the digital transformation efforts going on in Science.
