Which panel member is a black belt in karate? Who likes a Singapore sling? Find out below!

We have also put together a fun (and sometimes surprising!) infographic, showing the anatomy of the Expert Panel!

Brian expert panel page Brian Beato, USA

“I develop bioanalytical LC-MS/MS methods for drugs and metabolites, and oversee continuing development of our world class electronic lab notebook.”

What social media tools do you use? I primarily use good old fashioned semaphore flags. Admittedly, I do not get a lot of “Likes” and “Re-Flags”, but to my knowledge semaphore is still not illegal while driving. Inconvenient, perhaps, but not illegal.

“I am Head of inVentiv Health Clinical’s macromolecule bioanalytical operations, overseeing methods for the measurement of therapeutics, biomarkers, immunogenicity and neutralizing antibodies.”

That’s a lot of air miles…Chris has visited 13 countries in the past year!
