Simon Moore

Global Lead of Inhalation Science and Engineering at Covance

Simon Moore joined Envigo in 1999 as an inhalation study analyst and was promoted quickly within the Aerosol Technology and Analysis section. When the section expanded and divided in 2003 into inhalation chemistry and aerosol technology, Simon was promoted to the role of Head of Aerosol Technology with managerial responsibility for the aerosol technologists. In 2009, he took managerial responsibility for the inhalation engineering services group. In July 2017, Simon took on the additional responsibility of being part of the Toxicology Operations Management as a Team Leader of the inhalation study management team with line management responsibility for Study Managers and Trainee Study Managers in the Inhalation Studies Group.

In November 2019, Simon took on the additional responsibility of the US Aerosol technology and is now the Global Lead of Inhalation Science and Engineering. He is responsible for all aerosol technology aspects including of the overall interpretation and reporting of the inhalation studies including safety pharmacology and ADME globally. The inhalation engineering services groups designs, prototypes and manufactures custom made inhalation equipment for all inhalation sites within the Covance organisation.

Simon obtained his degree from the University of Dundee in Chemistry (1996) and gained his PhD in Heterogeneous Catalysis from the University of Glasgow (2000) using high-pressure gas flow and chromatography. Simon lectures at the University of Surrey as part of the MSc Toxicology course on inhalation dosing, techniques and methodology, is the Vice Chairman of the Association of Inhalation Toxicologists, a committee member of the British Standard Institution on Nanotechnologies and has produced over 100 publications.
