Lillian joined Pfizer in July 2006. She is currently working in the High Throughput ADME-CoE group within the Worldwide Pharmacokinetics, Dynamics and Metabolism department and is responsible for reactive metabolites assays. Outside of work, Lillian dedicates her time serving as an allocation committee member with the United Way and as a volunteer with the Estuary Council of Seniors of Old Saybrook.
On her assignment with USAID/CDC, Lillian will be providing consultation for development and standardization of laboratory procedures, strengthening laboratory quality management systems, mentoring and training of staff and teaching laboratory related courses. Through her GHF assignment, Lillian hopes to develop her leadership and management skills while helping others. Lillian anticipates that her newly acquired skills and experiences in Zambia will add value to her current job and make a measurable positive impact to Pfizerýs future success. Lillian believes that the skills and training she has acquired throughout her career will benefit the lives of people in developing the world.
USAID is an independent federal government agency and is the principal U.S. agency extending assistance to countries recovering from disaster, trying to escape poverty, and engaging in democratic reforms. The U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) was launched in 2003 to combat global HIV/AIDS. It is the largest commitment ever by any nation for an international health initiative dedicated to a single disease -- a five-year, $15 billion, multifaceted approach to combating the disease around the world.
