Medical & Regulatory Affairs

In November 2018, a cancer patient received treatment for their disease with InnoMedica's chemotherapy for the first time – a great moment in the history of InnoMedica. Together with the Swiss Working Group for Clinical Cancer Research (SAKK), the umbrella organization for Swiss oncologists, InnoMedica is conducting a phase I clinical study in Swiss hospitals. In consultation with Swissmedic and the European Medicines Agency (EMA), the team was working on the next steps for approval of the cancer drug and the start of a clinical trial of the product against neurodegenerative diseases.

The four-person team in the Medical Affairs division is responsible for planning and supervising the ongoing and forthcoming clinical trials which are conducted in collaboration with partners (e.g. SAKK) or directly with the hospitals. In addition, the team is supervising the exchange with the medical profession and the authorities.

Noëmi Müller (lawyer) together with her team and in cooperation with the Medical Affairs Team, ensure all documents for submission are in compliance with the regulatory provisions, and present the approval dossiers with the necessary documents for the submission.
