Premier Research

After getting bored of his first two careers (organic chemistry research and medical translating), Adam worked as a medical writer, first at a small contract research organisation and then at a large medical communications agency. He set up his own business in 1999, which was a lot of fun for a while but sadly didn’t survive the recession and ceased trading in 2014. Adam was EMWA President in 2004–2005 and was co-author of EMWA’s guidelines on the role of professional medical writers in publications. He finally got bored of medical writing as well, and now works as a statistician. However, he doubts he will ever get bored of coming to EMWA conferences.
