Stuart has co-lead a variety of work streams in a recently completed large EU private-public partnership on adaptive pathways under the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI). It successfully explored and developed new conceptual frameworks to expedite patient access to transformative medicines at the European level. Further work continues in a new EU IMI project on enhancing sustainable patient engagement across the life cycle of medicine development, which commenced in early 2018.
In addition Stuart is responsible for co-leading a variety of consultancy and policy projects across a variety of stakeholders and areas.
