Meet Our Team

Nuventra’s executive leadership has constructed a top-level Clinical Pharmacology & PK Group with extensive experience in clinical pharmacology, PK, and pharmacometrics who are able to tackle complex problems. The difference we bring to the table is that our consultants provide hands-on expertise which ensures a high level of support for ongoing development activities. Many of our team members also have cross-functional experience in other drug development disciplines and have worked with numerous small and/or virtual biopharmaceutical companies as well as many mid- and large-sized pharmaceutical companies.
