San Francisco, CA, February 7, 2011, Dr. Rosa Christy Armstrong, Principal and Consultant of Preclinical Solutions, has been recognized by Elite American Executives for dedication, leadership and achievements in preclinical research consulting. A 30-year veteran of the preclinical research field, Dr. Armstrong has successfully parlayed her experience in academic medicine into a second career in medical product development. Respected for her knowledge of histopathology and protocol design for animal studies, she is sought primarily to evaluate treatment sites from preclinical animal studies. Dr. Armstrong has distinguished herself for her thorough knowledge of her industry and her readiness to share this with clients. She considers guiding products from conception to clinical trials and, finally, into the marketplace to be the most enjoyable aspect of her present work. Prior to becoming an independent consultant, Dr. Armstrong was an assistant professor of anatomy and a member of the admissions committee at the University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine. She also lent her expertise to Collagen Corporation as a senior scientist and to the Genetics Institute as senior scientist and senior consultant. Especially beloved at UCSF, Dr. Armstrong was honored with an Award for Teaching Excellence in 1980 and 1979. Esteemed by her peers, Dr. Armstrong has published her research in various industry publications.

Dr. Armstrong discovered her calling in the sciences early in life; while growing up on her grandparents’ farm in Louisiana, she developed a fascination with biology that has driven her efforts ever since. She obtained a Ph.D. in anatomy and physiology in 1965 from UCSF, a Master of Arts in anatomy and physiology in 1958 from the University of California, Berkeley, and a Bachelor of Science in biology in 1956 from Southern University and A&M College, Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
