Glympse Bio CEO Caroline Loew grew up in England with the expectation that she could do anything. After all, her grandmother managed a hotel when she was in her 20s and her parents always supported her ambitions. And while for most students, organic chemistry is a weed out class for pre-med Caroline actually fell in love with the subject and pursued her PhD.
She then made her career in drug development at big pharma where she built a strong and broad foundation across multiple domains that prepared her to run a biotech company.
In this episode of the HealthBiz podcast Caroline shares her personal and career background and what it’s like to lead a high-profile spinout from MIT with prominent board members and investors. We also talk about sexism in science and business and I ask her to explain why she appears in so many podcasts.
Like a few of my other guests, one of her book recommendations is the Hard Thing About Hard Things by Ben Horowitz. She’s also a fan of General Stan McChrystal’s book Team of Teams. Recent recommended reads include Editing Humanity by Kevin Davies and No Rules Rules by Reed Hastings and Erin Meyer.
