Chloë Scheldeman

Senior R&D Manager, Scientific Development

A senior Pharmacist and scientist at heart with a Ph.D. and Postdoc in Pharmaceutical and Medical Sciences with excellent communication and writing skills and Project Management experience.

As a scientist, my role is to support the scientific development of our client’s healthcare product. Basically, I will provide scientific advice tailored to the specific needs of a client, be it pre-clinical or clinical. Sometimes clients have a very specific need, e.g. support in the set-up of pre-clinical studies or a need for strategic development advice.

I am often involved in cross-functional teams. For example, we supported a client in preparing for Scientific Advice with regulatory authorities to obtain input on the design of their pivotal PhII/III study. To that purpose, we assembled a team consisting of the right experts, a CMC, Medical, Clinical and Scientific expert, each to provide their advice and consolidate it together with the client’s CMC and pre-clinical data in a briefing book outlining the client’s proposed strategy. And this also underscores the strengths of 2 Bridge: we can provide you with a complementary team of experts to guarantee you the right expertise at the right time, avoiding unnecessary recruitment and waste of time.

Excellent science is the foundation for and the common thread during the development of a healthcare product.
