  • Stephen V. HammondSenior Director/Team Leader of the Process Analytical Sciences GroupPfizer Global Technology

    Steve is a graduate of the Royal Institute of Chemistry, London. He has a Masters in Analytical Chemistry from the University of Kent, UK.

    Process Analytical Sciences Group consists of some fifty scientists, responsible for Pfizer Global Supply developing and deploying capability in the area of Process Analytical Technologies, advanced sensors and data collection, knowledge engineering, advanced control systems and predictive modelling, supporting the development of an "Intelligence based Manufacturing" paradigm within Pfizer.

    Also, within Process Analytical Sciences Group, is the Material Characterization Team. This team provides Material Sciences and Forensic Analysis services to the Pfizer Global Supply plant network, both internally and external CMO's.

    During Steve's thirty seven year career with Pfizer, he has authored or co-authored many scientific publications on the pharmaceutical applications of Process Analytical Technologies and contributed many oral presentations on this subject as an invited speaker.

    Recently Steve has taken responsibility for developing a suite of process analytical technology sensors and their interfaces, for the monitoring and control of continuous manufacturing streams, both solid dose forms and continuous flow reactors.
