John’s main professional focus is in early-stage chemical development and scale-up projects for GMP and non-GMP products to aid in securing material supplies for toxicological studies and Phase I and II clinical trials. His expertise extends to the scale-up of fluorination chemistry and to the synthesis of polymers and dendrimers.
John obtained a first-class honours degree in chemical engineering in 1990 and then went on to obtain a PhD in chemistry. After his post-doctoral study in the US, John worked in the speciality chemicals area before moving into the contract research sector in 2001 where he worked on early phase clinical development candidates as well as a period of time in specialist manufacture of organo-fluorine compounds, from grams to tonnes. John joined JKonsult in 2020.
