Evan McClure, MD, MBA
Evan joined Life Science Partner in 2017 to apply his dual medical and business backgrounds toward helping healthcare companies build great leadership teams. Prior to joining Life Science Partner, Evan founded The McClure Group, a consulting firm providing strategic advisory and design services to healthcare-related companies, especially early stage ventures and the investment firms that fund them.
Evan previously worked with Genentech in its Competitive Intelligence unit, where he evaluated M&A opportunities for its lytics franchise. There he leaned on his neuroscience background and his connections to thought leaders in neurology, cardiology, and interventional radiology.
Evan also has insight into life sciences investments. He is an operating advisor with Equity38, a private equity firm targeting micro-cap investments in the health, wellness, and active lifestyle sectors. He previously worked with HealthQuest Capital, which provides venture growth funding to medical device, diagnostics, healthcare IT, and consumer healthcare companies. At HealthQuest Evan focused on due diligence for investment opportunities and advising exit strategy planning for portfolio companies.
During medical school Evan co-founded Forge Health, a nonprofit organization that supported the healthcare entrepreneurship ecosystem in the Southeast by providing grants, clinical pilots, mentorship resources, and community events to local healthcare startups. Forge Health has since merged with Sling Health (formerly IDEA Labs), a biomedical design and entrepreneurship incubator with chapters across the nation.
Evan earned his MD from Emory University School of Medicine and his MBA from Emory’s Goizueta Business School. He completed his undergraduate degree in Neuroscience at Vanderbilt University. Evan’s research publications focus on neurosurgery, plastic surgery, hospital operations, neuropsychophysiology, and genetic-environmental interactions in neurodegenerative disease. Among Evan’s personal interests are inventive cooking (previously ran a restaurant with a celebrity chef), mountain biking, downhill skiing, graphic design, tennis, and guitar.
