A physiologist by training, he is recognized for his expertise and experience in inhalation toxicology, where numerous drug candidates have benefited from his scientific input as they progress to the market or to advanced stages of development.  Following employment at the Huntingdon ResearchCentre and Hazleton Laboratories in the UK, where he became familiar with the technicalities of the emerging science of inhalation toxicology, he was employed as a Senior Toxicologist at the Research and Consulting Company (RCC) in Geneva and Basel, Switzerland where he applied the technically advanced Swiss inhalation exposure and monitoring systems to assess the toxicity of numerous drug candidates for many international clients.
