Rolf Banholzer,

Excellence in Service Award

Rolf Banholzer has a PhD in Molecular Biology from the University of Basel. His focus is on promoting Computer Systems to be understood as an integral part of efficient and compliant clinical processes, and how they must enable end-to-end data integrity in the clinical research and development process.

He acts as a translator between IT and Business to obtain optimal user requirements as the basis for successful implementation of IT systems. He promotes clear and transparent communication as well as striving for simplicity – an imperative to manage the ever increasing complexity of computer systems.

For the past 17 years he has worked for Novartis in Basel in roles with increasing responsibility. He started as a Safety System Administrator and then moved to a Business Analyst role in the Pharmacovigilance area before he took over a global team of QA IT Systems and Process Experts responsible for all IT systems in Novartis Pharma Development. Since 2013 he has provided QA oversight over clinical data management and statistics processes with his team.

He was co-leading the DIA/ISPE CSV workshop recently held in Basel, is actively supporting the organization committee of the DIA EU Clinical Forum and he is a member of the DIA Advisory Committee for Europe, Middle East & Africa.
