Regulatory Affairs Expertise at Target Health


No matter what happens in the discovery phase, innovators of drugs, devices and biologics will always need to amass data and have expertise in regulatory affairs. While Target Health is well-known in the data and software space, and is the champion of the paperless clinical trial, we are also quite known and respected in the regulatory space. Our esteemed head of regulatory affairs is Glen Park, PharmD, and yes, he is the only Park at Target Health who is not of Korean descent. Glen joined us 9 years ago and has been a major asset of our company. Glen had over 20 years of experience at AVENTIS PHARMA (FORMERLY HOECHST MARION ROUSSEL), SANKYO PHARMA DEVELOPMENT and the UNIVERSITY OF IOWA, and now leads the regulatory team at Target Health which represents 36 clients at FDA. The following are major Target Health accomplishments where we made significant contributions to the regulatory approval process:

As a biologist, Dr. Mitchel is fascinated by the fauna and flora of Central Park, the heart and lungs of New York City. How brilliant it was to put a park right in the middle of it all. Every week we will try to share the breath of wildlife in NYC.
