Jack A. Reynolds, DVM, DACLAM, DACVP and FIATP is a Founding Partner of AnaBios. He recently retired from Pfizer as Senior Vice President of R&D and Worldwide Head of Safety Sciences. With over 30 years in the pharmaceutical industry, he is a seasoned leader within the pharmaceutical industry, having made substantial contributions to numerous development programs and important drug approvals. At Pfizer, he defined and implemented a new paradigm to elucidate, understand, manage and mitigate the inherent risks of medicines. This had a profound impact on Pfizer’s early stage portfolio in reducing attrition, improving drug development effectiveness and expanding their R&D portfolio. This early de-risking of drug development programs is only now being emulated by others.
