Pavel joined Amgen in 2002.  He has held positions as Senior Scientist, Principal Scientist and is currently Scientific Director within Process Development. His responsibilities include analytical method development for therapeutic proteins during all stages of drug development and analytical support of manufacturability assessment, process development, manufacturing and quality for both innovative and biosimilar protein drugs.  Pavel supports the development of new analytical methods with emphasis on biochemical (mass spectrometry, chromatography) and biophysical characterization of therapeutic proteins, therapeutic antibodies, bispecific antibodies, antibody drug conjugates, and Fc-fusion proteins.  His responsibilities also include qualification and transfer of established methods to high-throughput implementation, process analytical technology and quality control labs. Pavel’s accomplishments include scientific and technical innovations with 9 patents, several pending patent applications and 70+ peer reviewed journal publications.
