Advanced Clinical Research Services Announces Patricia Walicke as a Core Member of its Strategic Advisory Ecosystem

BANNOCKBURN, Ill.—(PRWEB) October 14, 2010—Advanced Clinical, a leading provider of clinical research services, announces Patricia Walicke MD, PhD as a core member of its strategic advisory ecosystem.

As a strategic advisor, Dr. Walicke brings years of leadership strategy experience across several areas of clinical research, including protocol design and clinical plan development across multiple phases. Additionally, she has experience in regulatory submissions and interactions as well as medical monitoring and safety. Her expertise combined with her current work as an independent consultant for clinical development programs contributes to Advanced Clinical’s Industry Leading R&D Performance (ILRDP) framework that seeks to make the “business of R&D” more effective and efficient for Life Sciences companies.

“The team at Advanced is very bright, dedicated and determined, and, by working together, we have the opportunity to share how to operate more efficiently and effectively in the industry,” said Patricia Walicke, Advanced Clinical Strategic Advisor.

Formerly a practicing neurologist, Dr. Walicke changed careers to drug development approximately 15 years ago. She has experience with biologics and small molecules, and has worked on indications in neurology, autoimmune rheumatologic disorders, dermatology, ophthalmology and oncology. Notably, Dr. Walicke led the Phase 3 team for approval of efalizumab (Raptiva) for psoriasis; helped design extension of rituximab to non-oncology indications, particularly multiple sclerosis; obtained the first clinical proof of concept for anti-NGF in analgesia; and has been awarded several drug patents. “Drug development was a way for me to help more people more efficiently. You can potentially help hundreds of thousands of people,” said Dr. Walicke.

In addition, Dr. Walicke took a leadership role in establishing clinical groups in two start-up companies and restructuring the clinical department for biopharmaceutical company Oxigene with relocation from the East Coast to the West Coast. About Advanced Clinical: Advanced Clinical provides consulting services, strategic sourcing (CRO), talent management, and technology solutions to the Life Sciences industry. With 15+ years of experience, Advanced Clinical is an established presence in the clinical research field, providing services specifically for Pharmaceutical, Biopharmaceutical, Biotechnology and Medical Device organizations.
