Nica Radu Dumitru

Director, Medical Affairs and CEE Therapeutic Area Leader, Dermatology at Eli Lilly and Company

Born in 1981, studied applied sciences in College and then Medicine at University in Bucharest (“Carol Davila” University of Medicine and Pharmacy), I started off as an MD, trained in anesthesiology, intensive care and clinical toxicology.
Then my career path veered rather soon towards the pharma industry, where my expertise gradually built onto many areas, but none as much as immuno-modulatory biologic and targeted-synthetic therapy for inflammatory and immune-mediated diseases.
Currently, I work for Eli Lilly in Romania, based in Bucharest and being the Medical Affairs responsible for Dermatology, plus leading the Medical Team in Dermatology across CEE. Our focus in Dermatology is now on Taltz in Psoriasis and on Olumiant in Atopic Dermatitis, but other indications and products are on the horizon.
My “department of choice” within pharma will always be the Medical Department with all the scientific contribution and close relation it brings to our partners and health care providers.
