Biotechnology Entrepreneur; pioneering scientific breakthroughs to save lives
As Head of Technology Strategy Susan has a unique role creating cohesion at the interface of research, intellectual property and business in the critical early phases of translating the scientific vision from lab bench to approved drug products. She aligns teams to conduct due diligence, establish technology proof of concept, raise additional capital to optimize the technology, and establish an intellectual property strategy to incentivize collaborations and obtain exclusivity.
