After a 3-year post-doctoral fellowship in Sydney (Australia), he joined the peptide CDMO industry at UCB-Bioproducts in 2001 as Head of Analytical Services.

His role was to lead and coordinate multidisciplinary teams developing manufacturing processes and control strategies to successfully bring peptide APIs from toxicological and clinical phases to commercialization. He was also responsible for establishment of project scope, budget and timeline as well as for project execution with cross-functional oversight.
