What do you wish you’d invented?
I wish I could invent a ‘car with flying gears’ so that I can avoid traffic and reach anywhere, anytime.
What trend do you see shaping the industry?
The industry is seeing a sea change in requirements for Clinical Trial Data sharing. Driven by expanded disclosure regulations, industry-driven transparency initiatives and additional drivers, there is a call for broader transparency and more consistent and high quality data to be made publicly available. With these requirements, the scope of clinical information that was required to be published has also increased substantially.
Interestingly, the industry is under pressure – not only from regulators – but also from patients, patients’ advocates and the general public. This trend is transforming the Clinical Trial industry, and we’re helping our clients react to this ongoing challenge.
What has made you proud in your career?
While presenting at a conference, a very senior representative from a competitor company came to me and thanked me for bringing Clinical Trial Disclosure work to India.
It was an unexpected appreciation from a competitor but made me feel immensely proud of my achievements and left me with the realisation that I have been able to make a contribution to the Life Sciences industry.
Where were you before?
Prior to joining Kinapse, I worked at Ranbaxy in Research and Development.
Why did you choose to work in the life sciences industry?
I chose to work in the healthcare industry because it gives me an opportunity to be able to contribute to patient lives, and that is something which is very close to my heart.
