Following our success at the 2011 TOPRA awards, members of the Regulis team were once again nominated for the 2012 awards. The awards recognise excellence in different aspects of Regulatory Affairs and evidence to support the nomination is provided and assessed.
A panel of independent judges reviewed all the nominations and whittled them down to a shortlist of three in each category.
From the Regulis team:
- Kim Wharton was shortlisted for the Communication award, in recognition of a particularly challenging piece of technical writing;
- Amy Whyte’s strategic advice and support during a company merger ensured she was shortlisted for the Support award;
- Jenny Gray was shortlisted for the Horizon award, for people with less than three years’ experience in Regulatory Affairs showing outstanding ability and promise.
The winners were announced at the Gala Dinner and Awards evening in November 2012, which was preceded by the TOPRA annual lecture. This year Sir Michael Rawlins, chair of NICE, delivered an excellent speech on the theme of adaptive licensing and inductive evidence.
No one was more surprised than Jenny, when her name was announced as winner of the Horizon award. Jenny qualified in health sciences in her own time through the Open University and since moving into Regulatory Affairs in 2010, she has successfully delivered on a wide range of client projects. Showing great potential for the future, she has proved herself to be a valuable member of the Regulis team.
