Pauline McGregor, Ph.D. CChem MRSC has over 30 years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry. She is an expert in quality systems and procedures, GMP regulations, and analytical chemistry. She has utilized her skill set globally in the UK, Canada, US, Jordan, Brazil, and China and has helped companies prepare for a GMP inspection to gain their European/Health Canada/FDA GMP licenses. She is often asked to perform self-inspections for companies as an extension of their quality group.
Throughout her career, she has identified a lack of shared knowledge between Manufacturing, Quality Control, R & D, and Quality Assurance sectors in the Healthcare Industries. She believes there is a need for cross-education and training to allow the different disciplines to communicate with each other so that realistic objectives can be met by all in a timely manner with a harmonized understanding.
As a USP volunteer, Pauline was a proud member of the initial USP expert panel for Validation, Verification, and Transfer of Analytical Procedures and a member of a USP Chemical Medicines Monograph expert review committee. She continues to be a USP expert volunteer. Pauline is also a member of The Royal Society of Chemistry, UK, and is listed on their current directory for consultants.
