Mark W. Tengowski, DVM, MS, PhD

Director, Medical & Scientific Affairs

Dr. Tengowski brings a large breadth of applied medical knowledge, critical thinking ability, and drug development experience from compound nomination through post-marketing investigations to Bioclinica. In the industry since 1999, his imaging experience spans ultrastructural- and light-level microscopic evaluations to non-invasive imaging methods, applying imaging endpoints to nominate and advance compounds, manage safety findings, and achieve regulatory approval. Mark served as a medical advisor to the Business Development team, supporting new requests for clinical trials and consultation while being a scientific expert for projects with an inflammation or musculoskeletal focus (e.g., osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, NAFLD/NASH and cholangitis, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, deep vein thrombosis, women’s health [breast volume/density, vaginal dryness, uterine fibroids, and endometrial thickness], medical devices, and orphan diseases [hyperoxaluria, acid sphingomyelinase deficiency, Pompe disease, Gaucher disease, Niemann-Pick disease]). With a veterinary background in inflammation and pharmacology, Mark approaches protocols from a mechanistic point of view – devising an imaging strategy that will achieve the study’s objective and end points. In the external environment, Mark has been an invited speaker to the FDA and been the author of draft guidance issuances, given posters and podium presentations at national and international meetings, participated in several disease workshops, and published numerous abstracts, articles, and book chapters. Dr. Tengowski is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and is licensed to practice veterinary medicine in WI and NY states, with USDA-accreditation, and a member of the American College of Rheumatology.
