Dr Andrew Wells

Charnwood Technical Consulting

I am a specialist and expert in the field of chemical process R&D where, over the past 30 years, I have spent most of my professional career employed at three multi-national pharmaceutical companies, rising to the rank of Senior Principal Scientist (Director Level) at AstraZeneca. I have experience across all aspects of the pharmaceutical lifecycle, especially R&D, synthesis, green chemistry and material supply at all scales from discovery chemistry through to validation, manufacture and life cycle management. A major focus over the past 20 years has been the application of homo/hetero-metal catalysis, biotransformations /biotechnology and green chemistry solutions in the tactical and strategic manufacture of pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals and fine chemicals. My career has spanned across a broad range of scientific disciplines, and I am a keen exponent of working at the interface of the physical and biological sciences to champion the adoption of novel, more sustainable technologies across a range of business areas.

I currently work as a project partner in a number of consortia – both business-business and business academia, and as a consultant to a range of businesses including small biotech companies, fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) , multi-national pharma companies and agrochemicals companies. I also work with universities looking at accessing grant funding and commercialisation of novel sustainable manufacturing technology. I have extensive networks in the pharmaceutical/synthesis/industrial biotechnology /biocatalysis communities and can work with a number of specialist technology companies and SME’s to deliver projects for clients.
