Novo Nordisk has announced Avideh Nazeri as the new Director, Creative Medical Research for UK/Ireland.
She will be arriving from Malaysia, where she most recently worked with Novo Nordisk BA South-East Asia as the Director of Clinical, Medical, Regulatory & Quality (CMRQ). In this role she was responsible for driving strategy across 14 countries and six affiliate offices.
Avideh is an Endocrinologist and has worked at the King’s College London, before joining industry in 2006. She started with Novo Nordisk Iran as Medical Manager and, in 2008, moved to work at Global Medical Affairs in Denmark. During five years as Global Medical Director she was responsible for the portfolio of modern insulins, faster aspart and Semaglutide. Avideh then moved to Novo Nordisk Canada, as Head of Medical Affairs, where she stayed for seven months and managed to integrate two new functions – KOL engagement and learning programmes – to Medical Affairs. The team established accredited field medical education with extensive reach across Canada. Avideh then relocated to Malaysia, where she has been for the last three years.
After living in nine different countries Avideh is extremely excited to be coming back to the UK.
