ABOUT ME
img
Dr. Christian Velten

I am an educated molecular biologist with a strong expertise in genetics, biochemistry, microbiology, and genetic engineering.

After finishing my PhD, I had my own business for about 10 years and served life science industries with information research & analysis, market and competitor intelligence, and digital media.

At last, I was a knowledge analyst and project team leader with Novartis Pharma Global Medical Affairs, responsible for quality, steadiness and compliance of medical/clinical information processes and services supporting global business units and Novartis country organizations. This included aligning deliveries to business needs and regulatory requirements as well as operating successfully within a multi-cultural matrix organization.
