Women can’t do science to wonder science woman

Born and raised in New York, Francesca Wuttke needed to become a scientist, especially because she was once told that girls couldn’t be scientists. In spite of her catholic teacher, Francesca got her PhD in Pharmacology and embarked on a stellar international career. She successfully navigated the worlds of academia, private equity and consultancy before finding her feet in the pharmaceutical world. In 2015, after 4 years with Novartis in Basel, Francesca and her family relocated to Barcelona, where initially she headed up Almirall’s corporate strategy efforts before taking up a position at Merck’s Global Health Innovation (GHI) Fund to lead their European investments. During her time at Merck, Francesca drank the digital cool-aid - an experience which defines her most recent career move. Today, Francesca is the Chief Digital Officer at Almirall, a Spanish pharmaceutical in the early phases of its digital transformation. Under her leadership, the company is poised to benefit from and fully embrace the many opportunities digital health offers. The company’s accelerator program, the Digital Garden, entering its second year (with a focus on medical dermatology and pharma process optimization), is instrumental in the company’s digital journey. We learn more about life in Barcelona, the city’s thriving start-up scene and how the Barcelona Health Hub is attracting big investment and sponsorship from some of the largest corporations in the world.

Podcast #10 – Bill Taranto – the Wolf of Merck

In our latest podcast, we talk to Bill Taranto, President and General Partner of the Merck Global Health Innovation Fund. The son of a career Air Force pilot, Bill grew up in Florida. In the early 80s, Bill swapped sailing and boat racing for New York and Wall Street. After a couple of years in healthcare investment, Bill was offered to join Johnson & Johnson and started putting capital to work in digital health long before anybody else (though at the time it was vaguely known as ‘IT adjacency’). The move to Merck came years later in 2010, when Bill got the opportunity to open his own venture capital shop. Bill talks to us about the early days of health tech investment, the difficulty of putting data to proper use, the holy grail of physician adoption and his unique approach to investing in this space. We also learn about Bill’s passion for music and entertainment, and that even though he can’t carry a tune (so he says), in another life, he would have loved to be a musician.

An Epidemiology Journey From Vectors and Movies to Hospital Innovation

John Brownstein is the Chief Innovation Officer of Boston Children's Hospital. He’s a busy man, to say the least. Martin and I managed to get some time with him in his ‘new’ hometown of Boston.
