LinkedIn: Yuliya Fontanetti

Having worked in the healthcare market research arena for most of her career, Yuliya’s passion for uncovering research insights has been supported by gaining robust experience across numerous therapy areas and methodological approaches over the years. Through her avid interest in high quality data and a real fascination with healthcare research, Yuliya has developed extensive data collection expertise and the desire to deliver ‘gold standard’ within MR by combining the drive for innovative approaches with guideline adherence and understanding.

A naturally keen ambassador for ethical compliance and guidelines, Yuliya joined the BHBIA Ethics & Compliance Committee in early 2018 to help drive compliance across the industry and has since spoken at several successful BHBIA events, eventually taking up a position as a Deputy Chair of the Committee in 2019.

At this year’s bhbia2023 conference, Yuliya’s passion and commitment to the BHBIA was recognised as a recipient of The John Aitchison Award for Outstanding Contribution

Kim Smith, BHBIA Ethics & Compliance Advisor

LinkedIn: Kim Smith

Kim is a compliance professional with many years’ experience in the pharmaceutical industry. She has held senior company-wide compliance roles at Abbott, Merck and Leo in the UK over the last 10 years so brings great depth and breadth of expertise to the BHBIA. If you notice an accent, that’s because Kim’s compliance roles started 14 years ago at AstraZeneca then Baxter Healthcare in Australia. One of Kim’s great strengths and loves is training, so she’ll be bringing that to the BHBIA table.
