Say hello to our newest contributor, Dave Handelsman, who is a Principal Product Manager for Clinical R&D at SAS, which means he works as a liaison between the life sciences market and the SAS Pharmaceutical Software Development division. Basically, he's responsible for conveying the market's needs to the SAS R&D team and ensuring that SAS builds products that solve real business problems.
Here, he'll be responsible for explaining his "off-beat and unusual" thoughts to our readers. That's his term, not mine, and a direct quote from his first post (though he prefers the term unique).
Dave wrote a popular article for sascom back in 2005 titled, "Pharmaceutical industry, heal thyself." He's also been known to speak at industry conferences, including PharmaSug, and he monitors the conversation at the SAS and Clinical Trials Forum.
What will you find in Dave's first post? An "off-beat and unusual" look at SAS through the lens of a Ben Affleck movie.
