Bioanalysis Zone

Interview with Dr Chris Beaver (inVentiv Health Clinical) on GLP compliance


Chris Beaver inventivChris Beaver (inVentiv Health Clinical formerly PharmaNet) spoke to Bioanalysis Zone in August 2011.

Could you tell Bioanalysis Zone a little about your career to date and how you ended up in your current role?

The route to my current position has been a bit more circuitous than most. I initially obtained a PhD in Neuroscience from Dalhousie University in Halifax (Nova Scotia, Canada) and subsequently completed a Post Doc at Yale University (CT, USA), fully expecting to continue into an academic career. However, in early 2001, I was attracted to a small biotech firm in North Carolina that was developing a drug-screening platform for Huntington’s and Parkinson’s diseases. In 2004, I was hired by MDS Pharma as a Team Leader in their Ligand-binding and Cell-based Assay Department and subsequently became the Associate Director in 2005 and Scientific Director in 2008. In September 2010, I joined PharmaNet as Director of Immunochemistry and Cell Biology, overseeing the Princeton (NJ, USA) large molecule lab.
