Tell us about yourself
I am an experienced business development professional with a strong scientific background in life sciences, with 20 years of academic and industry experience. After receiving my PhD in Biochemistry from the Russian Academy of Sciences, I performed post-doctoral studies in protein crystallography in the U.S.A and Italy and held multiple international industry positions related to biologics development, manufacturing, project management and business development. I enjoy spending time with my family and two dogs, playing tennis and reading books on medieval history.

Rentschler Biopharma is a company with great reputation in the industry, well known for its scientific approach to process development and manufacturing. This was particularly attractive to me as a person with an academic background.
What excites you about your current role?
Rentschler Biopharma is experiencing significant transformation and expansion. As a BD professional, I am excited to become part of this process and help expand the business, especially considering the tremendous growth opportunities that the current CDMO market can potentially offer.
