Image Description

GW PharmaConsult is a young company, established by myself in 2017. After 30 years in development and production for German (Klinge Pharma, Temmler Werke) and international companies (Fujisawa/Astellas (Japan) and SwissCaps/Aenova (Switzerland)), I invite you to benefit from this experience.

I am a pharmacist with a long experience and specialization in formulation development of generic APIs and NCEs. My main interests and strengths are characterized by the development of solid dosage forms, tablets, multiple units, hard capsules and soft capsules, including scale-up to production (e.g. for omeprazole also as a combination with diclofenac-sodium following a patented process).
