Ryan McNamara is a formulation scientist with over ten years of pharmaceutical industry experience. Ryan earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology with a Chemistry minor from MSU. Over the last decade, Ryan has had the unique experience of developing a wide range of pharmaceutical dosage forms including immediate release/modified release tablets, capsules, topical gels and creams, oral suspensions, suppositories, and pessaries. He is also well versed in GMP/GLP documentation practices, process research and scale up, production packaging and automation, and FDA/USP guidance.
