Director, Simulations Studies
Becky Graves is a Director of Simulations Studies at Simulations Plus where she works on consulting projects alongside mentoring scientists, providing mechanistic absorption and physiology-based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) models for the pharmaceutical industry. She uses her 10+ years of modeling experience to develop mechanistic models in various pre-clinical species and human populations and to apply these to guide drug development at various stages of pre-clinical and clinical development.
Prior to joining Simulations Plus she worked at GlaxoSmithKline in positions of increasing seniority within Drug Metabolism and Pharmacokinetics (DMPK), progressing from bioanalytical work, through designing DMPK studies to providing the strategy for various drug discovery projects. Finally, Becky moved into a team dedicated to providing end-to-end mechanistic modeling for drug discovery and development, including predicting efficacious human doses prior to First Time in Human studies and supporting drug product development with physiologically based biopharmaceutics modelling (PBBM).
Besides her professional work and family, Becky enjoys playing field hockey and spending time in the great outdoors.
