John K. Whisnant, Jr, MD

John Whisnant is available to contribute biotechnology and pharmaceutical experience to drug development projects. He brings excellent training in medicine (MD Wake Forest Univ., Amer Board of Pediatrics) and science (NIH and Duke, Immunology, ABAI), and he has continued to grow with rich opportunities in the best of R&D groups, and with great mentors at the right times (Wellcome to 1987, DuPont to 1991, Fujisawa 1992, and Novo Nordisk to 2002).

He applies medicine and science to business goals and processes, having learned at Ivax (1992-1995) and more recently in directing Coley's Development during its licensing and IPO successes with oligodeoxynucleotides. 

Dr. Whisnant is prepared to help clients with new products or with projects that need support, expansion or evaluation.  Areas of particular interest include the biological therapies of cancer, biotechnology products including interferons and  recombinant proteins, cancer therapy strategies, diabetes therapies (OHA's, insulins, NCE's), all phases of clinical trials including safety issues, drug delivery including generics, and regulatory strategies/plans and documentation.
