Meet the DREHM Pharma family…

Alexandra Slawik

The Family Adventurer


Alexandra is usually one of the first people scooting into our office every morning, and she brightens up each day for us with her sunshine smile. She loves people, but it can be tricky to catch her, as she doesn’t stay in the same spot for very long. She bounces around our office, with unbridled activity, accomplishing tasks and spreading cheer where ever she goes. Outside of work, she enjoys darting around Vienna on her Vespa, meeting with friends, taking trips to distant lands and immersing herself in other cultures.

Because of Alexandra’s love for life and people, she chose to study medicine. In 2009, by a happy coincidence, Alexandra left the world of research to join us at DREHM Pharma. Her extensive medical knowledge and research experience are a perfect match for our Pharmacovigilance department.

Meanwhile Alexandra is an active mother who masters the art of balancing her professional enthusiasm and her unsteadiness.

Andrea Zudrell

The vivid explorer

With a big appetite for exploring the world and a bag full of ideas, Andrea set off and left her home in Western Austria to see places. She first moved to London and savored the city life, then travelled to South East Asia and Africa.

Both Kathi and her darling best-daughter-ever keep her on her toes with their vivacity and jollyness.

A passionate character, Andrea now follows her new passion at DREHM Pharma: Medical Writing and Pharmacovigilance.

Bianca Koller

bianca-kollerThe happy sweet exploring tooth

It always is a good morning at DREHM – with Bianca spreading joy and good mood in her typical manner.

Supporting daily office routines with organizational skills, Bianca is a natural-born office manager and has a special hang for Excel sheets.

Nothing can slip her attention – no piece of chocolate is safe – and no kittycat can stroll off without a huge caressing hug.

Humans are also very dear to her – her favorite ones being her friends and family – and she takes them to known and new places, not without bringing her camera.

Bianca has been in charge of our office management since 2015 – with her typical smile on her face.

Daniela Ostheim

The career changer

After completing her studies in ecology with a focus on environmental economics, Daniela first wanted to save the world and ended up in environmental management, safety management and finally quality management. Her preference for planning and structure proved to be very helpful on this way.

When Daniela is not busy with processes, she is quite busy with her lively family and likes to browse Second-Hand shops and flea markets. She also loves to pickle fruit and vegetables in a variety of ways, make chutneys, mustards or sauces and make juices.
Especially in summer she is constantly to be found at markets or in gardens.

After some time with a non-profit organisation and doing quality management at universities, she moved to the food and beverage industry for several years and now contributes her experience in quality management to DREHM since May 2018.

Eva Bauer

The Eagle-Eye


Whenever possible, Eva is out in the open air – you can meet her on the back of her Icelandic horse, hiking hills and woods in Austria and abroad – or while fancying archery.
Whatever she does, she always carries her camera with her, as photography is one of her big passions – and she needs her keen eye for both photograpy and archery.
On a rainy day, she enjoys doing her regular Yoga-workout or spinning around some Salsa moves.

A little whirlwind, Eva started early to discover the mysteries of nature, which resulted in her joining the world of science:
Eva studied biomedicine and biotechnology and spent some time in Leipzig where she took part in a visiting research fellowship.
Back home, she finished her PhD-studies and discovered the joy of writing.

In 2016, Eva joined the DREHM Pharma Medical Writing-Team and shares her photographic skills whenever necessary.

Ewald H. Moser

„Ewaldus Hypermotoricus Magnus“


Starting with his first experience in pharmaceutical development at GEBRO, Ewald has earned himself this title due to his continual movement and crosschecking.

In the style of a true generalist – developing a broad knowledge and experience base in a variety of fields while not limiting himself or becoming extremely specialized in any one area – Ewald carved out his own career path to match his personal style. He really has worked in almost all areas of pharmacy: Pharmaceutical development, laboratory analysis, manufacturing, Regulatory and Medical Affairs as well as clinical studies. With this broad basis, Ewald not only shares his experience as a service provider within his own company, but also with other pharmaceutical companies as well through consultancy services.

His vision of building up DREHM Pharma from the start in 1997 with efficient and friendly people has been paying off both emotionally and financially. His credo is well known and cherished by all, „If there is any day where you dread coming into the office, or you don’t want to do the work, come and talk to me. We will find a solution together.” This philosophy has helped grow DREHM Pharma considerably in size. Today, Ewald is further supported by three junior partners in the management team. He feels confident passing responsibilities onto their brilliant minds and capable shoulders.

At this stage in his illustrious career, Ewald still lives up to his title as a „high-energy power“ at work as well as with his family. He especially enjoys traveling around and actively supporting the diverse athletic and musical ambitions of his young children with the whole family.

the ChocolateYogi

Always riding on the crest of a wave, Johanna swam her way happily through childhood and many swimming competitions. Later at university, she transitioned from nutrition science into the pharmaceutical world.

To keep her spirits and energy high, she always makes sure that her favorite treat and energy booster, chocolate, is within easy reach. At DREHM Pharma, her fully stocked chocolate drawer is well known (and often visited) by all! As a student, Johanna used to swim laps around Lake Constance (Bodensee) to compensate for the extra calories, but after moving to Vienna, Johanna found a new solution: Yoga! She greets every morning with sun salutations and every evening with meditative repose.

In this way, Johanna stays both spiritually and physically in shape while pushing her career ever forward.
Currently she expertly juggles several different hats in our office (including Regulatory Affairs, Market Access, and as Head of Quality Management and Product Development/Production with calm nerves, a cool head and the sweetness of chocolate.

Monika Tallian

The singing green thumb

Singing, family life and gardening are the main passions of Monika, who early discovered the joy of chorus singing and is regularly very engaged in rehearsing or performing in concerts.
Her green thumb makes her garden her personal paradise and source of supply of various greens and vegetables for her family.
Not only are Monika’s children her pride and joy, but also a big support in moving things around her garden, albeit not always in a planned way.
Her special passion is her impressive herb bed, the plants and essential oils holding a particular fascination with their power on body, mind and soul.

The seed of business was sown with her studies of molecular biology, followed by years of clinical research practice, with a special focus on identifying, documenting and solving problems of various kinds.
A fortunate gentle breeze took her to DREHM Pharma after her maternity leave.

Monika’s fortes such as tidiness, diligence and her soft spot for analytical thinking are exquisite features to support DREHM in the fields of Quality Management and Product Development.

Natascha Gansinger

The Structured Calm One
Natascha Gansinger
Whether it was for anatomy exercises during her zoological studies or as a co-worker with a property developer: accuracy and structure were important for a good result everywhere.
So it’s no wonder that Natascha has made it into the quality area of DREHM.

Her calmness is not only helpful in the working world. This quality also benefits her in her leisure time when taking photographs, hiking or diving. In addition – thanks to a large portion of curiosity – there is hardly a place in Lower Austria that Natascha has not yet seen or photographed. And in the evening, you can mostly find her reading one of her countless illustrated nature books or novels.

Since May 2018, Natascha masters upcoming challenges at DREHM and is proving her skills in the areas of Quality Management as well as Development and Production .

Richard Ofner-Erath

The Treasure Hunter

Ever since Richard was a little boy, he had a deep fondness for hiking in the mountains. As passion goes, he has still a big heart for nature and enjoys hiking with his friends whenever possible.

Up in the mountains, his dear companion is his GPS receiver, as Richard is a bugger for Geocaching – like a hunter of hidden treasures, he is looking for GPS coordinates.
During the cold season, you can meet him in badminton courts or on his workbench, working on various model kits.

His professional career path is far from being a straight line, with the occasional corner:
after studying Environmental System Sciences and Biomedicine, he had a short interlude as Poker dealer and finally made his way from Graz to Vienna to join DREHM Pharma’s Pharmacovigilance team in 2017, contributing his eye for treasure to the field of Drug Safety.

Stefan Zohmann

The climbing Explorer
Stefan is an explorer at heart. In earlier years, he traveled far and wide with his wife to discover new cultures, countries and continents. Today he turns his attention more locally towards unknown regions to explore with his wife and three children. Whether traveling here or abroad, his camera is always at the ready to capture his experience on film.

His explorers nature rings true in his professional career as well. After studying veterinary medicine (including studies in the U.S. and a research internship in Peru) and four years working as an archaeozoologist at excavations in both Turkey and Greece, he found his current adventure at DREHM Pharma in 2006.

Within this new environment he eagerly delved into the ever changing world of Pharmacovigilance. He wakes bright and early each day eager to face new and exciting challenges.

As the Head of Pharmacovigilance and a junior partner, Stefan is thrilled to work with the management team navigating the DREHM adventure and exploring new horizons.

Tina Kreiner

The Anglophile Fashionista
From a very early age, Tina’s heart has been drawn towards both science and legal practice. Since she couldn’t limit herself to just one, Tina has found a way to combine both. After studying microbiology, she soon discovered the world of Pharmacovigilance where she really can utilize her wonderful passion for the natural sciences as well as her affinity for legal matters.

While at the EMA in England, Tina realized the simple truth: She is a London-maniac – an Anglophile and simply giddy about all things British. Her weaknesses include British museums, theaters and fashion.

Her interest for the British theatre was the reason why she started acting classes. Regardless whether she is performing deep emotions or working on elocution and phonetic training, Tina is always dressed to the nines. From fashion shows to magazines to Oxford Street, Tina loves keeping on top of fashion trends while adding in a special twist of her own.

Today, Tina eagerly applies her skills and talents to DREHM Pharma in both the Pharmacovigilance and Quality Management departments, completely accessorized with her latest fashion ensemble.
