Leane is a chemist by training and has over 19 years of industry experience in Regulatory, Quality Control and Manufacturing supporting both development and commercial products across multiple therapeutic areas. At BeiGene, Leane leads the US small molecule Regulatory CMC team focusing on developing and executing global regulatory CMC strategy for right-first time small molecule CMC related submissions, including the global expansion of Bruton tyrosine kinase inhibitor, Brukinsa, to over 70 countries. Leane is also dedicated to process optimization and is passionate about developing and mentoring fellow team members.

Dr. Shinji Fujimori is Executive Director of Process Development and Manufacturing at Erasca, Inc.  He received his B.A. in Chemistry from Lake Forest College and PhD in Synthetic Organic Chemistry from University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.  Before starting his industry career, he was a postdoctoral researcher at Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich in Switzerland.  He has over 17 years of experience in process research and development at both large and small pharmaceutical companies including Merck, Gilead, Medivation, Pfizer, Myovant Sciences and Global Blood Therapeutics.  He has more than a dozen publications. 

Dr. Diana Sperger is a Director in Formulation and Process Development at Gilead. She is responsible for lead optimization of pre-clinical drug candidates, preformulation, formulation development, process scale-up, technology transfer, and validation of clinical drug candidates.  Diana has been involved in the development of Odefsey®, Vemlidy®, Harvoni®, and Jyseleca®. She is also an inventor on U.S. and international patents related to drug product formulation, and process. Diana received her BA degree in Chemistry from the College of the Holy Cross followed by a PhD degree in Pharmaceutical Chemistry from the University of Kansas.

Dr. Gerard M. Jensen is with the Oliyai Consulting.  He served as Vice President and General Manager of the Gilead San Dimas and La Verne parenteral manufacturing sites.  He studied at UCLA and USC, obtaining a PhD in Physical Chemistry, and after a postdoc at Scripps worked at NeXstar Pharmaceuticals, and later Gilead, leading formulation, process, and analytical development, and scale-up, manufacturing and testing of complex parenteral therapeutics.  Commercial products produced at these sites include the liposome products AmBisome® and DaunoXome®, Macugen®, an oligonucleotide aptamer ophthalmic injection, Cayston®, an inhaled antibiotic, Veklury® for COVID-19, and developmental/clinical products including long acting antivirals and ADCs.

Dr. Ziqi Gui, a Senior Director of Analytical Development and Quality Control at Vaxcyte, San Carlos, CA, holds PhD in analytical chemistry.  Ziqi has over 28 years of experience in analytical development and quality control in support of CMC projects from early clinical development to commercial launch.  His core responsibilities throughout his pharmaceutical/biotech career are method development, method validation/verification/transfer, analytical method troubleshooting, ICH stability program, authoring and reviewing regulatory submissions, such as IND/IMPD/NDA/MAA, leading specification committee for drug substances and drug products, and providing analytical control strategy in pharmaceutical development.

Dr. Michael Brandl is a Distinguished Fellow in the CMC group at Sumitomo Pharma America. He studied organic chemistry at the University of Toronto with Ronald Kluger and post-doctoral studies with Ronald Breslow at Columbia University before joining Syntex Research/Roche as a pharmaceutical scientist.  After leaving Roche in 2010 he joined Gilead Sciences as an analytical scientist and joined Myovant in 2018.
