Randal began his 20+ year career in industry at Amgen, joining the Analytical Sciences department, where he led analytical and cross-functional process teams. Most recently, Randal served as a director of Process Development overseeing the Washington site Analytical Sciences function.
Randal has broad experience developing large molecule therapeutics, both novel and biosimilars, from early stage First in Human, to commercialization through post-launch support and second generation commercial processes. He has been an author of numerous regulatory filings to the FDA, EMA, PMDA and many other agencies. With pivotal, commercial, and post-launch filings, these included a heavy emphasis on establishing comparability or biosimilarity for numerous molecules. Randal’s interaction with regulators includes both written and face-to-face meetings with multiple agencies. Randal received his Ph.D. from the University of Colorado in Biochemistry with a focus on membrane protein biochemistry and biophysics, and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the California Institute of Technology in X-ray crystallography of ion channels.
