Marie-Agnes-Heine-EMAThe European Medicines Agency (EMA) has appointed Marie-Agnes Heine as head of its communications department.

Heine (pictured), who has spent 20 years in media positions, will lead communications efforts at an important time for the EU drugs regulator as it looks to push through new legislation on access to clinical trial data.

Heine's career also includes media and communications roles at the United Nations, International Organization for Migration, UN Commission on Information and Accountability for Women's and Children's Health.

The EMA also announced the appointment of Manuel Ortigão as head of human resources. Ortigão, who joined the Agency on August 18, was most recently research manager at the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions (Eurofound),

He has worked in Portugal, Spain, the UK and Saudi Arabia and held senior human resources roles at companies such as Hewlett-Packard, Unisys and PricewaterhouseCoopers.
