Research & Development

The scientific aspiration to find new leads in innovative medicines has never been faster or more efficient.

Given the differences among organisations’ talent, processes, structure and culture there is not a standardised solution for the leadership within R&D.

We expect that all R&D leadership positions will continue to structurally evolve. In the future companies will need R&D leaders that:

  • Promote an internal culture anchored in ethics and science.
  • Front and centre in weighing up clinical rewards versus risk.
  • Define consistent global standards for scientific and medical affairs.
  • Have enough authority and freedom within the organisation to effect tough decisions regardless of reporting lines.

Typical leadership mandates include heads of:

  • Clinical
  • Medical Affairs/CMO
  • R&D/CSO (including pre-clinical)
  • Regulatory
  • Pharmacovigilence
