Behind the Curtain at IMPACT
Meet Our RegOps Group!
From Left: Ann Brown, BJ Witkin, Chrissy Cierpial, Kathy Elks
IMPACT's Reg Ops group has over 60 years of industry experience working on over 40 initial IND and NDA applications. We manage submissions to regulatory agencies world-wide and assist other companies with the technical aspects of document preparation, MS Word and template training, and the processes of electronic submissions in eCTD format.

During their free time, our Reg Ops team partakes in a few of their favorite things: Kathy and her "green thumb" keep busy in her garden; BJ roams the countryside far and wide on his bike; Ann kicks back while vacationing in Maine; and Chrissy, our resident gourmet baker, creates delectable cupcakes and other treats in her kitchen.

Think you'd like to join this team at IMPACT?  Then check out our open position!
