David Long worked for Rhône Poulenc Health Division (now Sanofi-Aventis) in Quality Assurance (QA) for over twenty years where he gained considerable experience in all three Good Practice disciplines, GLP, GCP and GMP. When he left Rhône-Poulenc he was Senior Director R&D Worldwide for Quality and for Process Improvement. Mr. Long has since worked for CHIMEX, a manufacturing subsidiary of the L'Oreal group, and also runs his own consultancy company.

Mr. Long has always shown a keen interest in promoting professional QA activities. He was a founder member and President of the French QA Society and a founder member and President of the European QA Federation. He was also the founder and Chief Editor of the Quality Assurance Journal, an international scientific journal specifically addressing subjects of interest to the R&D QA personnel.

He has lectured and trained widely, and been an active participant in developing training in Good Practices and QA working with a number of international groups including the OECD and the WHO. His latest contribution through the WHO has been in the co-authoring of a set of guidelines for research performed upstream of the regulatory scene, called "Quality Practices in Basic Biomedical Research".
