academic-industry relationships; clinical research; drug industry; drug screening; pharmaceutical services I have 29 years of experience at the FDA protecting the public health by assuring the safety and efficacy of psychiatric drugs. I accomplished this goal in part by working with pharmaceutical companies to help shape their development programs in order to meet FDA’s goals for assuring the development of safe and effective psychiatric drugs. I also worked to advance public health by helping to speed innovations to make psychiatric drugs safer and more effective. I accomplished this goal by working cooperatively with colleagues in academia and the pharmaceutical industry to advance research methodology in psychopharmacology. I hope to continue with these efforts to both protect and advance public health.
