Research Profile

Ross has a PhD in chemistry from the University of Melbourne, with a background in drug synthesis and metabolism. He joined IDT as a Senior Scientist in 1976 and was involved in establishing IDTís initial role as an interface between industry and academia, through the Victorian College of Pharmacy. Rossís career at IDT has spanned all aspects of drug discovery, drug development, scale-up and bulk API manufacture.

In recent years Ross has been responsible for successfully overseeing technology transfer operations from a number of Australian, Japanese and US companies to establish the manufacture of their bulk APIís at IDT. This has covered both the transfer of existing innovators products for supply to the US market, as well as the process development and scale-up of new drug candidates for clinical trials in Australia and overseas. During this period Ross has gained considerable expertise in the preparation of Process Development and Validation Reports and in preparing technical data packages for all types of other regulatory support documentation.
