About our Speaker – Michael Buckley

Once convinced of their superiority over synthetic alternatives, he founded Lawley Pharmaceuticals in 1995 to produce and license pharmaceutical grade hormone creams to meet a global unmet clinical need.

As CEO and Medical Director, Michael has overseen Lawley’s research and development, clinical trial, regulatory and marketing programs for Australia and international markets.
