PDS Life Sciences, a global provider of software and solutions dedicated to preclinical research and development, has announced the appointment of Vicente Nogués, PhD, to vice president of product development effective May 2, 2017. Dr. Nogués will be based in Basel, Switzerland. He will be responsible for scientific leadership of the Company and insuring the continuation of market-driven product development.
“Vince will be instrumental in providing scientific and operational leadership to PDS. His guidance will be especially important as preclinical research becomes more data-driven. The industry is increasingly demanding new ways to streamline data management and visualize data to make better go/no-go decisions in drug compound development,” said Sayed Badrawi, chief executive officer at PDS Life Sciences. “His arrival reflects the philosophical DNA of PDS, which is to first identify challenges in preclinical science and to then use technology to solve those challenges.”
Prior to joining PDS, Nogués held several research leadership positions at Novartis including head of preclinical operations, head of toxicology and head of scientific documentation.
“Joining PDS is an exciting next step in my career,” said Nogués. “I’m looking forward to leveraging my past experience in drug development to help PDS shape its future growth.”
Nogués earned a doctorate in veterinary medicine from the University of Zurich and a doctorate in veterinary pathology from the University of Berne.
