Dr Michael Pellini – Foundation Medicine – Executive Leadership Series

Authored by Karl Simpson

At the beginning of 2013 Liftstream profiled 13 life science leaders we believed were going to make an impact over the course of the year. Below we outline how Dr Michael Pellini performed for Foundation Medicine in 2013.

2013 Liftstream Analysis: Dr. Pellini joined Foundation Medicine in May 2011 and the company has gone from strength to strength. Dr Pellini recently secured $56m in series B funding for the development of FoundationOne. After a strong start, Dr. Pellini will need to keep Foundation Medicine on the right track in order to satisfy the long list of illustrious investors.

• Ensure the continued success of FoundationOne and keep building lucrative partnerships with pharma and biotech

• Foundation Medicine has now raised almost $100m and investors will be looking to see it is being spent towards an optimal return

2014 Liftstream Verdict: A successful IPO in 2013 will have provided an opportunity to investors to make liquid their investments in the company. In this sense it was a job part done. Foundation Medicine continues to gather many strategic partners for its diagnostic capabilities. Very good year for Mr. Pellini against our main goals.
