CRB’s Director of Digital Technology, Yvonne Duckworth, shines in the spotlight for the Women in Pharma series by Drug Discovery and Development.
With 31 years in the pharmaceutical industry, Yvonne Duckworth draws upon the rich experiences, projects and roles that have shaped her fondness for the industry. In this article, Duckworth shares how her captivation by the industry’s challenges continues, as do the rewards of making a difference in people’s lives.
Duckworth is not only grateful for her many past opportunities in pharma but she is also excited for what the future holds.
Duckworth is an active and engaged member of the pharmaceutical digitalization and robotics communities and a chairperson of ISPE’s Pharma 4.0™ leadership team. Her background as an engineer provides valuable perspective when exploring the impact of new digital technologies within a facility and its processes.
