Shining Excipient Star

What is your role at Colorcon?

In my role as General Manager for Formulation Technology, I have global responsibility for Colorcon’s excipient portfolio. This role involves identifying the unmet needs of the market and then working with our product development team to design concepts to address those gaps with innovative solutions. Before joining Colorcon, I worked as a formulator in the pharmaceutical industry and I’ve always had a keen interest in excipient science. In fact, from the very beginning, the role and importance of excipients in pharmaceutical dosage forms has blown me away! Excipients play a major role in pharmaceuticals; whether determining release kinetics or improving the flow properties or compressibility of a formulation.

About the Author

Making great scientific magazines isn’t just about delivering knowledge and high quality content; it’s also about packaging these in the right words to ensure that someone is truly inspired by a topic. My passion is ensuring that our authors’ expertise is presented as a seamless and enjoyable reading experience, whether in print, in digital or on social media. I’ve spent seven years writing and editing features for scientific and manufacturing publications, and in making this content engaging and accessible without sacrificing its scientific integrity. There is nothing better than a magazine with great content that feels great to read.
