In this episode of Molecule to Market, you’ll go inside the outsourcing space of the global drug development sector with Howard Berman, Founder & CEO at Coya Therapeutics
Your host, Raman Sehgal, discusses the pharmaceutical and biotechnology supply chain with Howard, covering:
How a neurology appointment with his father led to the creation of a biotech company focused on neurodegenerative, autoimmune, and metabolic diseases
Having the DNA of an entrepreneur but taking the time to gain a big pharma foundation
The harsh realities and characteristics required to start, fund, and grow a clinical-stage biotechnology company
The need as a biotech CEO to be bullish, have confidence in your partners and be passionate about your disease… while celebrating the little successes
Howard co-founded Nicoya Health in 2020 to realize the vision and research of Dr. Stanley Appel. He merged the company with Coya Therapeutics in 2021, where he currently serves as Chairman and CEO.
He has over 18 years of entrepreneurial and industry experience working at the interplay of science and business. His experience offers him a unique combination of business acumen and scientific credibility with the ability to assess, quantify, and bridge both disciplines.
Howard gained corporate experience with increasing responsibilities and positions as a Medical Science Liaison at AbbVie. He spent 7.5 years launching Venetoclax in CLL and later, supporting numerous solid tumor assets. He also served in leadership roles at Novartis Pharmaceuticals and later Eli Lilly where he was the scientific point of contact between the company and key opinion leaders for the development and initiation of collaborations, clinical trials and investigator-initiated trials.
