“PDA is very excited to have Mr. Gates join us at the 2023 PDA/FDA Joint Regulatory Conference to share such a compelling, although tragic, case-study on the life-and-death outcomes that poor quality practices and decisions can have,” said Glenn Wright, PDA President & CEO. “PDA’s commitment to our mission of advancing manufacturing science and regulation so members can better serve patients is fully aligned with helping our members and industry learn from these types of tragic and preventable events.”
Gates has covered aerospace manufacturing for 20 years for the Seattle Times. Originally from Northern Ireland, Gates graduated from Queen’s University Belfast with a degree in Pure Mathematics. He worked for ten years a Mathematics teacher in Ireland and then, on an Irish government development program, for three years in Zimbabwe.
