  • I am a retired endocrinologist whose career has included 30 years in academic clinical settings (University of MN and the Cleveland Clinic) focused on patient care and clinical trials in diabetes and cardiovascular disease. I then spent 8 1/2 years at Eli Lilly in the Diabetes Business unit working in diabetes drug development. I have set up a personal consulting company called "High Doc Consulting" with a focus on drug development and medical writing.
