We’re delighted to announce that our Head of Business Development, Michale Bouskila-Chubb has been featured in the sixth annual Movers and Shakers in BioBusiness report which showcases the 50 trailblazers shaping the future of the UK life sciences sector.

Michale has been featured in recognition of her contribution to Healx’s business through the negotiation and closing of the company’s first pharma deals, navigating new issues such as data use and IP in drug discovery deals using artificial intelligence (AI).

In addition to this, Michale has been instrumental in developing Healx’s business activities through two investment rounds totalling $10 million (2018, Series A) and $56 million (2019, Series B).

The full 50 Movers and Shakers in BioBusiness 2019 report (available here) paints a picture of the UK as a vibrant hub for bioscience in creating life-changing advances.

The 50 women highlighted in this year’s report have been nominated by the biobusiness community for their work across the following categories: science, finance, collaboration, patient impact and infrastructure. The collaboration cohort that Michale is recognised in features an impressive roster of women – all united in their dedication to promoting collaborative working practices and forging strong relationships between people and organisations.
