Pharma R&D Veteran Annalisa Jenkins On Diversity as a Tool for Innovation
We recently visited Dimension Therapeutics, a Cambridge-based biotech focused on gene therapy, to speak with renowned pharma R&D veteran Annalisa Jenkins. We covered a range of topics with Dimension's CEO, who previously led global R&D at German pharmaceutical firm Merck Serono, but we plucked out a small portion of our conversation with Dr. Jenkins in honor of today's Healthcare Businesswoman Association (HBA) Woman of the Year event. In the short video, Dr. Jenkins discusses how diversity in life sciences leadership can generate value and accelerate innovation in the industry. Medidata's own Kara Dennis is being honored at HBA's Woman of the Year event as an industry "Rising Star." Kara is Medidata's managing director of mHealth and leads the efforts to enable mHealth-powered clinical trials and patient-centric research.
