The patient perspective has always been important to me
“It is really exciting and stimulating to be able to gather my experiences from clinical work and academic research and now take on a position within a research based pharmaceutical company like Pfizer. I look forward to be a part of, develop and contribute in giving our patients access to more effective treatments. The patient perspective has always been important to me so it feels very good that that is a fundamental keyword in Pfizer’s work. In order to reach that goal we must work effectively together: pharma companies, the healthcare sector, patient representatives and academic researchers,” says Varenhorst.
John Brun, previously Medical Director, will continue working part time at Pfizer as Life Science Director. He will also work part time with strategic questions within LIF, the Research based Pharmaceutical Industry in Sweden.
