Oxford PharmaGenesis Inc., the independent, global HealthScience communications consultancy, is proud to announce that Kevin Ryder has joined their expanding US team as Vice President, Medical Services.
Kevin has over 16 years of experience working in medical communication agencies, supporting publication planning and other medical affairs activities. He has a passion for developing medical writers, mentoring medical directors, and refining internal processes to help teams to function more efficiently (and with less stress!). He is an active member of the International Society for Medical Publication Professionals (ISMPP), having led workshops and panel discussions at national meetings and also serving on various committees.
Kevin received his doctoral and postdoctoral training in the USA from the State University of New York at Stony Brook and the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, MD, respectively. He held faculty and administrative positions in academic, governmental and non-profit sectors before joining the medical communications field. In his spare time, Kevin is an avid amateur golfer (with emphasis on the word ‘amateur’!).
“Although I have only been with Oxford PharmaGenesis for little more than a month,” says Kevin, “I have been so impressed by the talent, dedication and professionalism of the team. It has been a delight working with my new colleagues and I am really excited about what we can collectively do to grow our business by serving our clients.”
