Oren Cohen is the new chief medical and scientific officer at Quintiles.

Cohen, an MD, will be Quintiles’ lead medical expert and will represent its positions on
many government policy issues, Quintiles said.

“Oren’s distinguished years at the National Institutes of Health and his understanding of FDA’s practice and direction make him a great asset to our customers’ programs,” said John Russell, head of government relations, at Quintiles.

Cohen joined Quintiles in 2001 as Director of Medical and Scientific Services for Infectious Diseases and Oncology. In September 2003, he was named Vice President and Medical Director for Quintiles’ Northeastern United States region. He came to Quintiles after working at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

Cohen is a graduate of the Duke University School of Medicine.
