Dr Fritiof Pontén is now onboard!
Dr. Fritiof Pontén has a solid experience of e.g. drug development gathered during 17 years at Astra Zeneca, including a wide range of drug candidates projects ranging from discovery to late stage of preclinical studies. In his role as a Senior Scientist and PhD in synthetic Organic Chemistry from Lund University he has obtained skills further through courses and training programs.
In particular he and his team´s primary tool, has been liquid chromatography – primarily analytical, but also preparative. He was also a key person in the development of the combinatorial chemistry, back in the 20th century.
He lives with his wife Margaretha half an hour from this office and ”onboard” is the proper term for Fritiof, since his hobby is sailing. His title will be Manager for Research and Development.
Having a background in organic chemistry and being a Senior Scientist a fair portion of his activity will be calling on high level analytical Biotech customers and OEM:s globally.
We welcome Fritiof in the beginning of August 2018.
