Meet Shalini Dwivedi

What do you wish you’d invented?

Robotic technology for underground car parking. I always get anxious when I need to park car in an underground car park. I wish I could invent a technology that could park cars perfectly, without a driver having to do it.

What trend do you see shaping the industry?

In the era of social media, patients are far more aware what is going on in the industry, and negative stories about pharmaceutical companies and drugs travel far faster than positive ones. This continuous pressure is compelling pharmaceutical companies as well as drug regulators to be more transparent. Going forward, transparency is key for life science organisations.

What has made you proud in your career?

Recently, our team worked until late in the evening to help a client meet the due date of a result disclosure. It was hard work, but it was worth it when that client thanked us and told us that they’d be lost without us.

Since then, clients have trusted us with an increasing number of urgent and complex deliverables. It’s so motivating to know that they have faith in my team and me.

Where were you before?

Prior to joining Kinapse, I worked in GVK Biosciences as a senior medical writer, and Inventive Health Clinical as a senior scientist.

My main responsibilities included preparing regulatory documents, protocols and results’ disclosure, and providing scientific inputs for clinical development.

Why did you choose to work in the life sciences industry?

For me, ethics is a key decision maker when choosing a job. I am proud of the fact that we are making it easier for patients to access clinical data, and at the same time helping pharmaceutical sponsors to become more transparent.
