Michael Silvon, Ph.D., MBA
Dr. Silvon has driven profitable, pragmatic life sciences operations over the breadth of small and large molecule drug development; creating, fixing and growing multiple high science, heavily regulated businesses as a senior executive for Charles River Labs, Bioanalytical Systems and ICI/Zeneca. He orchestrated six acquisitions in synthesis, bioanalysis, preclinical services and Phase I/IIa human clinical trials services: integrating them and later running three, long-term.
