Jodi Morrison on working in small Pharma and the importance of partnerships in personnel

We had chance to sit down with 2015 Partnerships in Clinical Trials Event Chair Jodi Morrison, President and Chief Executive Officer, Tokai; a few years ago for a one-on-one interview.  In this interview, she provides perspectives on how small and startup Pharma companies rely on partnerships to find success of their companies and emphasizes the opportunity of being small and nimble enterprises.  Being so nimble, she emphasizes that employees are the key to the success of any core company.

Not only are the companies nimble, they are very connected.  How can this benefit a CRO that will potentially work with CROs? With a startup Pharma company, often times the top management have spent much of their careers in the Big Pharma companies and have a huge influence within the industry.  Networks are a huge value for CROs and small Pharma can often help grow them.
