Genevieve Chase, PhD

Director of Asia Pacific Expansion
and Alliance Management

Genevieve completed her Bachelor of Science (1st Class Honours) and PhD in Chemistry, at the University of Sydney, Australia, developing platinum-based chemotherapeutics. Following her post-doctoral research at Virginia Commonwealth University, USA, Genevieve moved to Asia, first volunteering and fundraising in Thailand for nine months before moving to Singapore. 

In her 14 years supporting clients in Asia, Genevieve has gained experience spanning medical writing, project management and supervision, protocol development, content strategy, and development of international programmes. Highlights of her career include developing and leading the ACT China programme (to teach oncologists how to write clinical trial protocols and conduct clinical trials), as well as developing recommendations for vaccination, women’s health, and the management of cancer pain. 

Throughout Genevieve’s career, she has shown a flare and passion for working with medical experts. She loves providing new avenues for healthcare education, challenging the ways that medical education is conducted to ensure her audience gains that “A-HA!” moment.

At PREMIA, Genevieve leads the expansion of our activities in south-east Asia, and manages our diagnostic development outside of Japan.
