Meet Olof Breuer, MD, Clinical pharmacology lead

January 30, 2024

As a Clinical Pharmacologist at Karolinska University Hospital, Olof Breuer skillfully combines his medical expertise with a consultant role. He plays a crucial part at the hospital’s successful consulting business, delivering specialized advice in clinical pharmacology to various businesses.

When Olof Breuer was approached by PharmNovo in 2021 and asked whether he could help with clinical pharmacology consultancy services, the decision was easy.

“Most team members have a scientific background and are much driven by science and facts which, combined with an open atmosphere for discussion, fosters creativity. Working in such a team is a delight," says Olof Breuer.

Olof Breuer is appointed Clinical Pharmacology Lead, a strategic move that underscores PharmNovo's commitment to success. His extensive background in the pharmaceutical industry, with roles ranging from medical adviser to principal scientist, project manager, and clinical pharmacology director, equips Olof Breuer with a comprehensive understanding of the intricacies of drug development.

"I bring over 25 years of experience in drug development, of which 17 were spent in different roles within small and big pharma companies, for example, KaroBio and AstraZeneca. In addition, my current job as a senior consultant in the Clinical Trials Unit at the Clinical Pharmacology department within Karolinska University Hospital also brings hands-on clinical perspectives of pharmacokinetics, daily health care, and clinical trials."

An essential facet of Olof Breuer's skill set is his proficiency as a trained pharmacokinetics. By combining modelling and simulation techniques, Olof makes the design of studies and data analysis more efficient. This speeds up the research work and distils relevant data for decision-making, which is crucial when developing drugs.

"The fact that I am a "data analysis nerd" helps a lot in data mining so that potential problems can be identified early on and mitigated."

Olof's passion for addressing unmet medical needs, particularly in pain management, aligns perfectly with PharmNovo's mission to change the lives of people suffering from neuropathic pain.

"Research and development encompass problem-solving and creativity, which I consider important factors for job satisfaction. For me, such factors also add to the meaning of life."
