Richard Peck trained in pharmacology and medicine at the University of Cambridge and spent several years as a hospital physician before deciding on a career in clinical pharmacology. He has nearly thirty years’ experience in the pharmaceutical industry and for the last decade he has been Global Head of Clinical Pharmacology at Roche.
