As an Associate Scientist, Ed Freshwater works collaboratively with clients to provide in-depth population PK/PD modeling and simulation solutions to drug development challenges. He provides expertise in the design and execution of high quality pharmacometric analysis tailored for each client. Prior to joining Certara, Ed developed his skills while serving as the lead pharmacometrician on multiple CNS compounds at Otsuka under Dr. Timothy Goggin. Often times as new data was made available in fast paced Phase 1 trials, Project Teams needed to address problems that arose and make changes to the protocol. In order to decrease the time needed to gather, analyze and present newly available data to the team, he developed automated templates where on a daily basis, data sets are updated, processed and analyzed in R and disseminated at the team level.
Aside from his modeling and simulation activities, Ed is a part time chauffeur/apparatus designer/hair stylist for 2 Rhythmic Gymnasts who compete in the northeastern US during the spring. He also enjoys entertaining with friends and family at every open opportunity.
