An eminently talented cardiologist and internal medicine physician, Dr. Buch has since retired from the field. Having developed a deep specialization in cardiovascular research development in the pharmaceutical industry, he concluded his career with Pfizer Inc. at their New York City headquarters in 2009 where he worked for 17 years ending as a senior medical director and global team leader of cardiovascular. He also spent four years as a medical director in his home country of Denmark at its Copenhagen location between 1987 and 1991. Following his retirement, Dr. Buch continued to serve in a consulting capacity for Pfizer for another six years, until 2015, and has consulted part-time for several other leading pharmaceutical companies.
Dr. Buch's formative years began in 1969 at Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen, one of the largest hospitals in the country, in the department of cardiology and aviation medicine. He also worked at other Copenhagen University Hospitals as a physician and cardiologist between 1969 and 1987, and subsequently secured a position as an internal medicine and cardiology specialist at Copenhagen University in 1984 and, more recently, spent two years with Santaris Pharma between 2009 and 2011, a biopharmaceutical company that was founded in Copenhagen and has a second location in the U.S. Prior to his distinguished career in medicine, Dr. Buch took courses in England, Sweden, France, and the U.S. Later he lectured in about 35 countries.
As a researcher in the field of medicine, Dr. Buch has contributed numerous articles to various professional medical journals. He also notably holds the Pfizer's Caduet patent, which, during its best year, sold for over $400 million in revenue. Caduet is a prescription drug that combines Norvasc and Lipitor, which treat cardiac conditions.
Born in Copenhagen, Dr. Buch later studied anatomy at Manchester University before receiving a Doctor of Medicine at Copenhagen University in 1969. He completed a medical and surgical residency shortly thereafter and became board certified in both cardiology and internal medicine. To remain aware of developments in the field, he is a member of several professional organizations, including the Danish Society of Internal Medicine and the Danish Cardiological Society, where he received numerous research grants between 1969 and 1987. Other memberships to his credit include the Danish Society of History, Literature and Art, the Danish-Japanese Society and the Danish Egyptological Society. Dr. Buch is also a past chairperson of the Danish Bibliophile Club.
Passionate about Japanese culture, specifically woodblock books, Dr. Buch has spent his free time lecturing on the topic. He has also lectured and written articles about bibliophile subjects. He holds the largest private collection in Scandinavia of Japanese wood block books, which date back to 768 and include an impressive library of approximately 2,000 volumes. In 2005, Dr. Buch received a Pfizer Achievement Award for his work on the ASCOT Project.
