Joan Malmstrøm is a Principal Scientist at Novo Nordisk A/S holding a Ph.D. degree in chemistry from the University of Copenhagen and +20 years of experience with structural elucidation of organic molecules using nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and mass spectrometry as analytical tools.

The projects she has been involved in at Novo Nordisk A/S ranges from small molecules (API’s, raw materials/excipients, etc.) up to peptides/proteins and large molecular weight polymers.

During the past years one of her main activities has been the development of analytical methods suitable for analysis of leaching of silicone oil and degradation products hereof into the aqueous phase kept in primary packing material.
