Andrea Walmsley CChem MRSC 

Chemistry & CMC Consultant

I have over 25 years direct experience of small molecule Chemistry gained from working within both large and small Pharmaceutical / Biotech companies. 

My career began working within the Medicinal Chemistry group of a large Pharma company in the UK for 10 years as a Research Scientist, followed by working for Biotech / small Pharma companies in progressively senior positions. This included 5 years working for a successful, 'virtual' pharma company where I held the position of Discovery Chemistry Manager. 

Here, in addition to the Discovery responsibilities of molecule design, I was also responsible for the outsourcing of synthetic work and CMC campaigns.

In 2008, I started my consultancy and now work with companies in the UK and EU to progress their discovery and development programmes.

My key achievements have been the design, and instrumental input, into several programmes which are currently in Clinical Development by the original company or have been successfully out-licensed.

During my career to date, I have worked within the the key therapeutic areas of virology, neurology, oncology and pain & inflammation.
