Hi, my name is…
…Caitlin. I joined Roche Pharma Research & Early Development (pRED) in November 2016. I’m Welsh, and relocated to Basel, Switzerland from the Netherlands. I’m a neuroscientist by training, and hold a PhD in Neuropharmacology. I started my career as a bench-scientist exploring drug effects in animal models of disease. I was always drawn more to the big picture workings of pharma however, so transitioned fairly quickly into more strategic planning and portfolio management roles.
Understanding disease biology, identifying innovative ways to treat disease, and successfully leveraging this knowledge across the R&D value chain to bring transformative medicines to patients is what drives me. Fortunately, in my role (as the Senior Portfolio Manager & Decision Analysis Leader for the pRED Research portfolio), I get to live this every day.
I have the chance to work with dedicated and passionate scientists, and see from close quarters how our entire research and early development pipeline will bring significant benefit to patients.
