“We come from the tech transfer world so we understand what it takes to build companies around the expertise at universities and institutions."

“There has to be more willingness to invest in the early stage. If nobody had invested in mRNA technology 10 years ago, I don't think we would have had the Covid vaccine in less than one year.”

"I am passionate about science and committed to helping great ideas find their way to patients, so working at Sofinnova Partners is a perfect fit."
