Dr. Neil, former Senior Expert, Pharmacology and Toxicology, at Sweden's Medical Products Agency (MPA), will advise clients on all aspects of clinical development and regulatory affairs. He joins the PAREXEL Consulting team of global experts, which includes former regulatory officials and biopharmaceutical industry professionals, focused on helping companies manage risk and maximize product and portfolio value at every milestone and during each phase of development.

With more than 20 years of experience, Mr. Neil's background includes pharmacology research, drug discovery, and drug development.
