Diagnostics & Research
Diagnostic tests improve patient care, contribute to the protection of consumer health, and help to limit healthcare spending. The founder of Life Science Partner, Tom Callaway, helped the original launch of PCR diagnostics and helped commercialize the first DNA sequencing tests for clinical use. With the emergence of personalized medicine to help select appropriate drugs for specific patients, diagnostic companies are seeking leaders who understand the full spectrum of healthcare – from sequencing, information technologies, patient care, and pharmaceutical drug development. Life Science Partner excels in recruiting top scientific and business leaders in large and small companies within this emerging field.
