Michael P. Burak, M.S.
Michael has worked in the pharmaceutical industry for over 10 years working for a CRO, 2 biotech companies, and started his own consulting business. Within those years of experience, Michael has nearly 7.5 years of senior level/management/ownership experience. During this time Michael has been involved in 3 successful eCTD NDA/BLA submissions in which all drugs were later approved by the FDA.
Michael’s 10 years in the field includes biostatisticial experience which consists of protocol development, sample size calculations, generating SAPs and mock TFL shells, regression modeling, ANCOVA modeling, and writing statistical summaries. However, Michael generally chooses to review this type of work as a secondary role in order to allocate more time towards SAS® programming.
