Company History

Rodney E. Thompson, Ph.D. founded REThompson & Associates in 2000, a consulting firm specializing in helping clients develop, manufacture and commercialize their biopharmaceutical and pharmaceutical products. This business was renamed BioPharm Process Associates in 2006 to reflect the diversity of projects undertaken and the larger number of individual consultants involved.

Dr. Thompson received a Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the University of California-Berkeley and graduated first in his class with a B.S. from the Cornell University School of Chemical Engineering.
