From the construction of the Smiths Falls facility and sale of the first batch, to the development of Tweed’s in-house laboratory, Tom’s number one priority has always been ensuring the safety and quality of our products.
Tom studied Biopharmaceutical Sciences specializing in Genomics at the University of Ottawa. His toxicology research, while at Health Canada, focused on the effects common materials in our environment such as printer toner, paint, sunblock, tobacco smoke and road-side dust have on DNA mutations.
Upon completion of the research, he transferred to the Center for Vaccine Evaluation of Health Canada. There he reviewed vaccine production practices and performed testing on a variety of vaccines including influenza, hepatitis, yellow fever and rotavirus. He also contributed to the development of new testing methods of vaccines to replace traditional animal testing methods.
Tom’s scientific knowledge and experience in toxicology, biopharmaceuticals, and drug regulations all contribute to his effectiveness as Vice President of Quality Assurance.Leadership Team
