Jeffrey Carter, Ph.D., Regulatory Strategy Leader, GE Healthcare 

Dr. Carter has been a supplier to the bio/pharmaceutical manufacturing industry for the past twenty years, and he has been with GE Healthcare Life Sciences since 2005, serving in R&D and Marketing capacities.  Before this, he served in R&D and product management capacities at Millipore Corp.  In an R&D capacity at GE, he managed a group responsible for product development related to filtration and single-use products intended for use in biopharmaceutical manufacturing. He has also served in product management and in acquisition integration.  Recently, he has led efforts within GE to assure that raw materials, suppliers, and the supply chain for GE single-use products are at an appropriately high quality standard.  He has been active in organizations such as the Parenteral Drug Association and ASTM E55, and is a board member of the BioProcess Systems Alliance. His present role as Regulatory Strategy Leader is to serve as a voice for evolving regulatory and de facto expectations related to the global implementation of single-use manufacturing.  Dr. Carter holds a PhD degree from Penn State University in molecular microbiology.
