Vice President, Clinical Development
At Avanir, I especially derive satisfaction in knowing that what we do daily will ultimately benefit a number of patients, especially in areas of high unmet needs like Alzheimer’s disease and Traumatic Brain Injury.
Senior Director, Medical Affairs
One thing that is really fun for me with Medical Affairs is that you are at the hub of a lot of things. You get to work cross-functionally with so many different teams here at Avanir whether it is the legal team, the commercial team, the clinical team, and all the different aspects of the organization. I also get to work closely with thought leaders, so all of these things make it a really exciting position to be in.
