How can animal and human innovation/applications be mutually beneficial?

Rüdiger Raue studied veterinary medicine at the Free University of Berlin (Germany), where he also obtained his Dr. med. vet. (PhD equivalent) in 2000.

In 2005, he started his industrial career at Pfizer Animal Health in Sandwich (United Kingdom) as a member of the Analytical Sciences group in which he held various positions with increasing responsibilities. When the European R&D operations for Animal Health moved to Belgium in 2011, he became the head of the EU Analytical Sciences team.
