“I chose Premier Research because the company is in this business for the right reasons,” Mr. Davé says. “There’s a very evident passion for clinical research and a commitment to improve lives, provide hope, and create a healthier world.”
He also led clinical and regulatory affairs at Maxx Orthopedics, a developer of orthopedic medical devices, and has held roles in clinical operations, business development, strategic consulting, and medical affairs at companies such as Merck, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Aventis Pharmaceuticals, and Mitsubishi Pharma America.
