Study Hall (Episode 11): Leading a Pharma Startup: Interview with Dr. Terence Kelly
As you climb the career ladder (in advertising, pharma, or some other corporate gig) do you ever wonder what it’d be like to lead a pharma startup?
I have! So this month, we had Dr. Kelly on the podcast. After earning a PhD in Chemistry, he had successful big pharma research career, then became Chief Scientific Officer and then CEO of Comentis—which at the time was commercializing small-molecule Alzheimer’s and schizophenia therapies.
It was a great talk, covering what it’s REALLY like to lead a pharma startup, lessons learned and rules for success. We also get into the current (and future) research space and even the role of advertising and marketing in startups.
Now Dr. Kelly runs a consulting practice focused on strategic and practical solutions in the drug discovery space. If you’re interested in reaching out, you can contact him at LinkedIn.
