Analytical Team Leader

Russell heads the analytical quality control laboratory which uses state-of-the-art equipment to analyse all manufacturing stages and monitor product stability for at least two years after manufacture.

Russell holds a PhD in Organic Chemistry from Keele University in the United Kingdom. He has more than seven years experience working in cGMP/GLP analytical laboratories in the drug substance and drug product fields including a period as a senior scientist for drug development company Aptuit in the UK.

Russell cites Central Otago Pinot Noir wines and mountain tramping as two of the best things about having moved to New Zealand although his football allegiances remain with his home-town team, Crawley Town in the UK.
