Our CEO Lisa Patel booked an ‘appointment’ with Dr Vinay Shankar to share her STEM story and discuss the work we’re doing at Istesso. From her big pharma background to revolutionising the way we treat chronic autoimmune diseases, it’s an inspirational journey and a vital listen.
“It struck me the more I went along in my career that there were huge unmet needs that patients were facing that weren’t being addressed by current treatments. There are different ways of thinking about delivering innovation – listening to the voice of the patient, really understanding the challenges they face in their lives, and really trying to think outside of the box, outside the system, to develop drugs that would really change patients’ lives and make a difference to their day-to-day.”
