Our team currently consists of six industry experts. All have many years of experience in the application of grants, assistance and organisation of R&D projects and have had hands-on experience in R&D in pharmaceutical or biotechnology industries.
Dr. Jürgen Conrad, Partner
Dr. Conrad received his PhD in Molecular Biology from the University of Mainz. He was Project Manager at former Schering AG, Berlin, and later Head of Research of the Institute for Research in Diagnostics, a subsidiary of Schering AG. In 1992, he founded ConsulTech GmbH and has since then supported many companies with his specific know-how on corporate financing in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical devices industry sectors.
His long-standing experience in realization of many publicly funded international and national research and development projects in the Life Sciences is the basis of our and our customer's success.
Dr. Daniel Schubart, Partner
After studying Biotechnology in Berlin, Dr. Schubart obtained his PhD at the Friedrich Miescher-Institute (Novartis Research Foundation) of the University of Basel, Switzerland. His thesis about transcriptional regulation of immunoglobulin genes was published in Nature and the Journal of Immunology and was awarded the Edmond H. Fisher prize for the most outstanding thesis of the year. He started his career in industry as a group manager with the biotechnology start-up Axxima in Munich. He was working as Head of Bioinformatics at the French biotechnology company EntoMed and in Berlin in the areas of drug discovery, drug development and analytics for Paion AG.

As project manager she supervised national and international projects in the field of production-integrated environmental protection.
She has been working with ConsulTech since 2001 and has therefore vast experience in the support of R&D projects in biotechnology, pharmaceuticals and next-generation technologies.
Dr. Michael Rupp-Dahlem
Dr. Michael Rupp-Dahlem studied Biology in Berlin with focus on animal physiology. He worked as a scientist at the Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices (BfArM) and at the Institute for Analytics and Environmental Research with a focus on analytics and toxicology. He started working with us in 2002, after taking additional training in scientific information management. He advises and supports life science companies.
Ursula Wirtz is an engineer in Biotechnology. She worked in Berlin Chamber of Commerce Consulting Agency, supporting companies with respect to EU project funding. Furthermore, she worked for a consulting firm and as a freelance project manager with the aim of supporting companies and public institutions in filing applications for funding and execution of funded projects of federal and EU projects. Additionally, she has substantial experience in the pre-arrangement and management of partnering events, conferences and workshops.
