Profile: Chelsea Thorn


I am a Senior Scientist, Biotherapeutic Formulations at Pfizer in Andover, Massachusetts, USA within the Pharmaceutical Research & Development (PhRD) department in Pfizer’s Biotherapeutic Pharmaceutical Sciences organization.

I completed my PhD in August 2021 at the University of South Australia (Clive Prestidge lab) with key capabilities in biopharmaceutics, nanoparticle-based drug delivery, and bacterial infectious diseases. My research developed a lipid-based nanoparticle system as a platform technology to innovate the efficacy of antimicrobials, resulting in a patent filing.

My high level of clinical knowledge as an Australian-registered pharmacist supplements my expertise in pharmaceutical science and infectious diseases. I am also committed to supporting young scientists in my various roles in the Young Scientist Committee of the Controlled Release Society.
