Join us on Seept. 23 at 4 p.m. for the first of three seminars on commercializing biomedical research with Will Lewis, chairman & CEO of Insmed.

Lewis has over 20 years of executive experience and a history of success in the pharmaceutical and finance industries in both the US and internationally. He co-founded Aegerion Pharmaceuticals, a biopharmaceutical company, and served as its President and COO. In 2012, Lewis joined Insmed, a global biopharmaceutical company that develops and brings to market therapies for patients with serious and rare diseases, where he serves as CEO and Chairman.

Will will be joined by Chris Bailey-Kellogg, executive director of Computational Biology, and Karl Griswold, executive director of Biologics Research, two Dartmouth College faculty members who recently commercialized their research and had their company acquired by Insmed. Engage in discussion and hear the acquisition story of Stealth Biologics, LLC, from research to patient impact through commercialization.

In June of 2020, Will joined us to share his career journey, experience in entrepreneurship, and how the COVID-19 crisis impacts the pharmaceutical industry and the advancement of new treatments in medicine. You can watch his previous talk here.

This session will be offered in-person in the Biomedical Research Building Room 105 and via zoom.

The next session in the series will be held Oct. 7 at 4 p.m.
