The Biotech 2050 podcast had a candid conversation with Kevin Lustig, Founder and CEO of Scientist.com, which recently acquired HealthEconomics.Com. Lustig discusses his beginnings, key challenges in his career, and how Scientist.com has become a decisive player in the drug discovery industry. He reflects on how his background in academia transformed his career. Notably, Scientist.com has been able to generate $250 in sales in the past year while connecting scientists from around the world and accelerating research programs. Scientist.com and HealthEconomics.Com have worked together to create the HEOR, RWE & Market Access Marketplace, to match buyers of research services with solution providers.
“Kevin is a scientist-entrepreneur with 30 years of research experience in academia and pharma. He co-founded Scientist.com in 2007. In 2001, he co-founded Kalypsys, a small pharmaceutical company. He was Director of Lead Discovery at Tularik from 1997-2001. He carried out postdoctoral work at Harvard Medical School after receiving a PhD degree from Marc Kirschner’s laboratory at UC-San Francisco and an A.B. degree, magna cum laude, from Cornell University.” Listen to the podcast here.
