Life Science Partner recruited Bert Slade, MD, to serve as the Vice President, Clinical Development for TissueTech. Slade has built his career in leading clinical trials, medical affairs, and regulatory approvals for medical device and pharmaceutical companies worldwide. He joins TissueTech while also providing clinical support for Chisholm Clinical Research Services where he has set up his own vehicle to conduct clinical trials using the European platform as an inroad to EU product approvals.
