Our founder and Chief Regulatory Officer is Damien Bové BSc (Sci. Hons), MSc (Sci. Open), ICR who today leads ADACT’s team of global regulatory compliance experts for the electronic cigarette, vaping, CBD and herbal medicinces industries.

The building blocks of a career

Damien started training and working as a pharmaceutical technician in 1992 before heading to the University of Bradford’s School of Pharmacy, from which he graduated with an honours degree in 2000. After this, Damien immediately went to work in the pharmaceutical industry where he worked for both a large pharmaceutical company and a global contract research organisation where he worked in both R&D and regulatory compliance functions.

Growth through evolution

Taking these learnings, he left in 2004 to build on his knowledge and skills to set up his own independent R&D and regulatory compliance consultancy, ADACT Medical Ltd, while also obtaining his masters degree in scientific communication. Since then, ADACT has evolved in form and function several times with the changing demands of the marketplace, and today offers world class regulatory compliance services to electronic cigarette, vaping, herbal medicines, medical cannabis, CBD and hemp industries.

Today, Damien leads ADACT through his role as Chief Regulatory Officer whilst continuing to nurture his passion for medical sciences by sitting on the Electronic and E-liquids Committee of the British Standards Institute (BSI) and being a registered member of the Institute of Clinical Research and UKVIA.

Damien Bove will be speaking at the following sessions.
