Pascal Chalus, PhD LONZA

Pascal holds a degree as a chemist from the University of Haute Alsace, France. He aquired his PhD thesis, focused on applying near-infrared spectroscopy and innovative chemometrical tools for determination of drug content in low-dosed narcotics tablets, at F. Hoffman-La Roche.

Pascal stayed with F. Hoffman-La Roche the following 9 years and worked in small molecule development, implementing vibrational spectroscopies and imaging technologies in drug product development. He then focused on the spectroscopy and chemometrics in the frame of the implementation of PAT (Process Analytical Technology) in Roche’s small molecule drug development. Pascal joined LONZA’s Drug Product Services department in October 2017, specifically the Forensic Chemistry group. Together with his his co-workers he supports Lonza in troubleshooting and foreign particles investigations. He also supports external companies in their process understanding, troubleshooting and foreign matter identification.

Pascal is a member of the society of applied spectroscopy and leads the Basel group of experience exchange analytical imaging experts.
