Tim leads the Digital Medicine & Translational Imaging group at Pfizer. This team is dedicated to applying sensor- and non-invasive imaging-based technologies to clinical development programs across the enterprise.
Tim has a background in Positron Emission Tomography which he obtained during his time as a faculty member at Washington University School of Medicine. In 2001 he joined Pharmacia to pursue his interests in applying imaging to drug development. Following the Pfizer acquisition, Tim relocated to Groton and was part of Clinical Technologies before being asked to lead the Clinical Imaging Team in Molecular Medicine in 2007. In 2013 he expanded his role to include preclinical imaging and established a translational imaging team that works across the continuum of drug development. In 2018 he was appointed to his current role which expands his responsibilities to include the evaluation and deployment of novel wearables and sensor technologies in clinical development.
Outside of Pfizer, Tim has been active in the imaging community; he was President of the Academy of Molecular Imaging (AMI) from 2008-11 and he is a founding director and past-president of the Society of Non-Invasive Imaging in Drug Development (SNIDD). Tim is a Fellow of the World Molecular Imaging Society.
