Darryn Bampton MMSc BSc PGDip (Reg Affairs)

I am a competent and resourceful Regulatory Affairs and project management professional with 16 years experience in the prescription medicine industry (including 13 years of broad based regulatory affairs experience).

I have undertaken regulatory and development activities for European, US, Australian and New Zealand markets. I have worked with biopharmaceuticals (monoclonal antibodies, oligosaccharides, an autologous T-cell therapy), small molecule new chemical entities, and generics, in numerous therapeutic areas. I have guided regulatory projects from initial early development to licensing and managed all aspects of license maintenance including variations, renewals, labelling updates. I have worked on project teams for compounds in early stage development (nonclinical to first in-human), in regulatory, clinical and project manager roles, and have the ability to drive projects through to completion in a positive and focused manner. I have extensive experience in liaising with regulatory authorities, including preparation and attendance at regulatory meetings, and am very comfortable with this role.

I have extensive management experience, have prepared department budgets, and been involved with CRO selection. I have excellent oral and written communication skills and am able to distil information succinctly. I am a capable and enthusiastic professional, with excellent interpersonal skills, a rational, calm and positive disposition, and demonstrated management skills.
