Dr. David Brett, Product and Service Manager Vetter Pharma International GmbH

David Brett1.         What do you hope the audience will learn from this webinar?

The primary purpose of the webinar will be to help prepare participants for their clinical manufacturing projects by identifing the primary reasons why projects are delayed and the methods to avoid them.  Participants will learn about planning steps characteristic in clinical manufacturing and how to create a plan for choosing the right packaging and materials. We will also review legal aspects that are often stumbling blocks to advancing a project, as well as how to choose a high-quality CDMO for clinical scale-up manufacturing.

2.         What discussions do you look forward to having with the audience?

I would like to engage participants in a discussion about the specifics of their particular project, what they have experienced as major road blocks and how they have solved the problem. By openly sharing our experiences we can better anticipate our own clinical manufacturing problems and, hopefully, have a plan in place to avoid them before they occur.

3.         What do you enjoy most about your role?

I am in the unique position working hand-in-hand with many of the world’s leading innovative biotech firms that are responsible for bringing new and exciting products to the market. Every day brings new challenges and I enjoy not only having a front row seat, but also being an active participant in helping to resolve these challenges.

4.         How did you get into the industry?

My background is in clinical biochemistry having studied Biological Sciences at the University of East Anglia in the UK. I received an MBA at the University of Bayreuth, Germany and a PhD in Biochemistry at the Imperial College in London. I entered the biotech industry following postdoctoral roles in cancer and diabetes research. Since 2015, I have been Team leader of Product and Service Management for Vetter. In this role, I am responsible for the development of Vetter’s service offerings to optimally fit customer requirements.

5.         Where is your favorite place in the world and why

There are so many wonderful places around the world that it is difficult to pick just one. However, I am particularly fond of the Oberlausitz in Saxony, Germany. It is a wonderful, wild place with incredible wildlife and landscapes; a real hidden jewel.
