Phelan lands top GSK science role

GlaxoSmithKline has promoted Tina Phelan to the position of scientific comms strategy director.

The role involves managing global PR strategy for the company's pre-launch drugs and oversees a team of around seven staff.

Phelan replaces Ruth Crawford, who was based in the US and quit GSK in June.

Phelan continues to be based in Greenford, west London, in GSK's global commercial strategy group.

Her promotion is believed to have been announced internally last week. She is now looking for a replacement in her former position of product PR director.

GSK is seen as having one of the industry's strongest drug pipelines, having transformed its research labs in recent years.
