For about 25 years, I have been working in various fields building solutions in cardiology, internal medicine, medical diagnostics and medical devices for educational institutions, health facilities and manufacturers. With my roots in clinical education, I believe the industry should give back to the medical and patient communities in responsible, ethical, and highly impactful ways.

Work Experience

Scientific Medical Director

BPLab Corporate Group.

Jun 2011 - present


BPLab is trademark which identifies automatic blood pressure monitors and means "Blood Pressure Lab". The combination of these wearable devices with pulse wave analysis technology Vasotens provides an additional assessment of cardiovascular risk and central hemodynamics. In many publications I represent the Hemodynamic Lab Ltd which should not be confused with a cath lab. There are also an official representative in Europe, BPLab GmbH (Hessen, Germany) and a number of distributors all around the world.

In my role as Scientific Medical Director, I am accountable for strategic planning and tactical implementation as it relates to the medical affairs, research and development areas. Developing and driving medical and scientific expertise relevant to BPLab and Vasotens products, I successed in multiple international collaborations with academic groups and industry partners. Attending scientific meetings and conferences allowed me to support development of summaries of key data, and participate in an organization of relevant presentations or "how-to" sessions. One of my responsibilities is also medical coaching for Sales & Marketing.

Thus, I foster and transmit the ideas of BPLab's innovations to healthcare providers, health system leaders, partners, patients and employees.
