Thomas Lönngren, the former head of the European Medicines Agency (EMA), will probably have to relinquish all or some of the commercial appointments that he has taken up since his departure from the agency. EMA said on 21 March that Mr Lönngren must wait two years before he takes up a position with the private sector pharmaceutical industry. The announcement follows controversy over a potential conflict of interest after Mr Lönngren joined private sector companies shortly after leaving the EMA.
