A pharmacovigilance physician with 15 years of international work experience, Dr. Misra's background includes positions at hospitals in India and with Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders), as well as seven years of industry experience with both pharmaceutical and clinical research organizations.  Dr. Misra has also served as a medical monitor and conducted safety surveillance of marketed drugs as well as drugs in development.
