qPharmetra Creates Software and Clinical Pharmacology Business Units

Dr. Jason Chittenden promoted to VP Software and Dr. Jeff Wald to VP Clinical Pharmacology

(Andover, Massachusetts, July 27, 2018) qPharmetra LLC, a global leader in pharmacometric consulting, announced today that it has created two new business units to focus on the Software and Clinical Pharmacology needs of its clients. Many larger pharmaceutical and biotech clients with many drugs in development need custom software to help handle data and improve modeling productivity. Smaller companies are often in need of experienced clinical pharmacology personnel to help guide drug development programs from Phase 1 through approval.

Dr. Chittenden commented, “I am excited to lead the Software Business Unit and leverage our expertise in developing software productivity tools to create custom software solutions that improve the productivity and effectiveness of pharmacometric scientists in developing new drugs. We see many opportunities to streamline the modelling process with tools that will enable easier handling of data, more consistent modeling, and better reporting and visualization of results. Our iterative development process keeps the users involved in the project to ensure the final product meets their requirements.” For the past 20 years, Dr. Chittenden has been developing business process, simulation, and pharmacometric software, and completing pharmacometric modeling projects for qPharmetra and other firms.

Dr. Wald has served as a clinical pharmacologist for qPharmetra and pharmaceutical companies for the past 25 years. Dr. Wald shared, “With the creation of the Clinical Pharmacology Business Unit we will enhance our abilities to serve a growing market for clinical pharmacology services. Clinical pharmacology is a natural fit with our existing pharmacometric activities and this has been sought out by members of our client base. Furthermore, by defining this focus we will be able to grow our practice by attracting skilled clinical pharmacology consultants. Our consultants play a variety of roles for our clients, from providing high level clinical pharmacology strategy to  hands-on work on our client’s project teams.”
