Course Director: DR. MARK POWELL

Mark Powell set up Mark Powell Scientific Limited to provide technical support for pre-clinical drug development, which may involve short-term help with specific problems or management of the analytical aspects of a development project, for new or existing compounds, as part of a multi-disciplinary team. He has an expertise in analytical method development and validation (including assay of impurities), design of stability testing studies and auditing of contract laboratories. Mark is also an experienced quality auditor, and can perform GMP audits of contract laboratories, including evaluation of compliance with data integrity requirements.

He also provides training services, which are accredited by the UK’s vocational skills agency, Cogent SSC, and are designed to ensure that analysts have the necessary theoretical and practical skills to perform their jobs competently. As well as courses in instrumental chemical analysis, He also provides training in basic laboratory skills and technical writing (analytical methods, SOPs and technical reports). Mark has recently been working with Spectroscopy Magazine to write and deliver an on-line training course in UV spectroscopy and has also been asked to provide training on behalf of the chromatography consumable company Hichrom.
