Based at Astellas' Illinois headquarters for its Americas operations, Dr Kremer will be tasked with providing “global leadership for medical excellence and a unified medical perspective”.

The company's Global Medical Affairs unit is one of its newest organisations and, although based in the US, may work with a variety of supporting positions from across the regions in which Astellas is active.

"We are thrilled to have Charlotte join Astellas. She brings years of experience and an outstanding reputation to this new, global leadership role," said Yoshihiko Hatanaka, president and CEO of Astellas Pharma Inc., the parent company of Astellas US LLC.

"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."

Dr Kremer has spent 20 years in the pharmaceutical industry, most recently serving at Pfizer as VP and therapeutic area head for ophthalmology, PVD, rare diseases and neuroscience.

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.
