"Further globalising our key functions, such as medical affairs, is a top priority at Astellas because of the value it brings to the company in this competitive global business environment."

Prior to joining Pfizer she worked at Organon in the Netherlands and the US, providing medical support, developing phase IIIb/IV clinical trials and initiated and developed a medical liaison programme.
