Emerging Potential: Changing Lives One Story, One Therapeutic at a Time


The 2023 Emerging Pharma Leaders share with the Pharmaceutical Executive editors what makes a good leader, what has made them the proudest in their career, lessons they wish they had known when starting out, and more. (This is the audio-only Pharm Exec Podcast episode!)

Each year, Pharmaceutical Executive recognizes up-and-coming leaders who are vital to the future of the pharmaceutical and biotech industry in the Emerging Pharma Leaders (EPL) Awards. Nominations are judged by three members of the Editorial Advisory Board as well as a former EPL representative.
