After increasing responsibilities as a postdoc and a productive year working in GSK, he joined Pfizer UK as a team leader in assay development in pre-clinical drug discovery. This experience ultimately allowed Michael to enjoy a brief stint in Singapore, where he successfully introduced electrophysiology and functional imaging techniques at an institutional level in the field of Dermatology.

He is also excited to look after the European business activities for Bachem’s expansion of the API manufacturing platform to produce oligonucleotides for clinical research and commercial use.
