Enabling the impossible. The history of life sciences is studying what used to be unknown to mankind, treating what used to be undruggable, and in many cases, curing what used to be fatal. When I was in research, we attempted to untie the mysteries of living things in petri dishes and cell models. Now that I’m on the commercial side of the life sciences industry, I believe the overarching goal is to bridge the gap between medicine and basic science in order to make more and better treatments available to patients. I want to be part of the great movements where we bring more hope to patients, families, and society.
How does a role in life sciences speak to your passions?
Bridging the gap between science and patients. Coming from a family with many medical workers and losing beloved ones to severe diseases, making more effective treatments available to patients is what really drives me to help further the field.
