Ana Luísa Justino
< Back


Ana is a biomedical manager, with deep experience in biotech/pharma industries, personalized product development, R&D, analytics and regulatory compliance. She is extremely versatile with proven track-record in project, team and people management. She is currently Regulatory Affairs Manager at BIAL (Porto, Portugal), but before she was Team Lead & Line Manager at Oxford BioMedica, where later she became an Analytical Consultant while doing an MBA.

Before, she joined QIANGEN (Manchester, UK) as a scientist, and in less than 1 year was promoted to a Senior role, supervising a team of +10 talented scientists, who developed commercial medical devices from bench to bedside. Her international experience instigated her ability to deal effectively with multicultural and multidisciplinary groups of people.

With an ESTJ Myers Briggs personality type, she walks the talk while is able to combine critical thinking with a detail-oriented focused approach, triggered by a sense of ownership, drive for results, and challenging the status-quo mindset. But there's also a B-side in Ana's carrer path. Ana views herself as a person who values her relationship with her family and friends, admitting that these are her pillars. Being an avid reader of beat and classic novels, Ana is also a traveler, dog lover, insect eater and wannabe (one day she says) a good cook. In her spare time, she also enjoys doing non-profit work, as a volunteer.
