Dr. Amir Kalali is a highly respected member of the global community in life sciences and clinical research. In fact, for 5 of the years between 2005 and 2012, PharmaVOICE magazine named him as one its 100 most inspiring leaders in the life sciences as voted by his peers. Dr. Kalali was Global Head of the Neuroscience Center of Excellence at Quintiles IMS.
