Speaker Spotlight: Dr. Patrick Crowley

Patrick Crowley is a Pharmacist by training and has spent his entire career involved in dosage form design, analysis and delivery in the UK and USA. He made significant contributions, as laboratory scientist, team leader and department manager in the development of over twenty novel molecular entities as commercial medicinal products. These included chemical (synthetic) entities, semi synthetics, fermentation products, vaccines and biopharmaceuticals as oral (liquid and solid), parenteral and topical presentations.

Since retiring as a Vice President in Pharmaceutical Development at GlaxoSmithKline Patrick has operated as an independent consultant. He is also a Visiting Professor at The School of Pharmacy, Kings College, London, teaching classes on Biopharmaceuticals, Vaccines and Immunotherapeutic agents. He also teaches modules on Pharmaceutical Development and Manufacture at a Masters Course for Regulatory Affairs Professionals organized by The European Organization for Professional Regulatory Affairs (TOPRA), and has worked with a Team that developed an ONLINE teaching module for Regulatory Affairs professionals in European Union countries (PHAR-IN program), specifically for acquiring an awareness of biopharmaceutical dosage form design manufacture and evaluation.

He does not enjoy running (apart from crossing the finish line) but, nevertheless runs regularly, including annual participation in the Boston Half-Marathon. He looks forward to meeting some (similarly slow) runners at the meeting and possibly a pre- or post-session run.
