Paul Matejtschuk (BSc, PhD, CChem, FRSC) is a Principal Scientist, and lead the Standardization Science Section in the Analytical & Biological Sciences Division at the National Institute for Biological Standards & Control (NIBSC), a centre of the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency , whose mission is to safeguard the quality of biological medicines. NIBSC is also designated a WHO International Laboratory for Biological Standardization.

His team is focused on delivering formulation and lyophilization conditions for a wide range of biological reference materials and research interests include the relationship between structure and stability in biologicals, thermal analysis and methods for the characterization of lyophilized proteins.

Paul has 35 years postdoctoral experience working in both academia and industry in the areas of biologicals, has co-authored many peer-reviewed papers and has broad experience across downstream processing, formulation and characterization. He is a Director of the International Society for Lyophilization/Freeze Drying (, membership officer of the Thermal Methods Group of the Royal Society of Chemistry ( and in 2019 co-edited with Dr Kevin Ward “Lyophilization of Pharmaceuticals & Biologicals - New Technologies & Approaches for Springer Humana Press (
