Leader background:
John, a pharmacologist, was a lecturer in pharmacology at Manchester University from 1974 to 1992, where he studied drugs and the movement of ova through oviducts, anti-asthma drug models, and the pharmacokinetics of alcohol (never a shortage of volunteers). He has written or contributed to several pharmacology textbooks, and acted as an expert witness in court cases involving alcohol. In 1992, he became a full-time medical writer, initially with Gardiner-Caldwell Communications, then as Medical Team Director at Medical Action Communications and briefly as Medical Director at OCC. Since 2001, he has been a freelance medical writer, medical communications consultant, and trainer. John is a regular contributor to the range of training courses offered by the Proper Medical Writing Group in Poland and by Kemic Bioresearch in Canada. Satisfied customers include the Canadian Government’s medicines regulatory department. He has served on the EMWA Executive Committee as Universities Liaison Officer and was a member of the EMWA Professional Development Committee (EPDC) from 2005 to 2010.
