Life Science Partner is pleased to announce the recruitment of Pamela Goldberg to lead the Medical Device Innovation Consortium as President and Chief Executive Officer.
Prior to starting her own consulting firm in 2017, Ms. Goldberg served as the CEO of the Massachusetts Technology Collaboration, a public economic development engine designed to foster technological advancements, where she helped launch Massachusetts to national leadership for adoption and interoperability of electronic medical records and collaborated to build the health information exchange connection to the EHR.
She will succeed Bill Murray as CEO, whom Life Science Partner recruited at the organization’s inception, and is well-suited to lead MDIC into its next phase of growth and impact, building on the foundational successes of Mr. Murray and his team.
“Pamela’s solid entrepreneurial experience synergizing objectives for multiple government and for-profit institutions, combined with her successful leadership experience in digital health advancements, leveraging big data, and advancing healthcare technological innovation, make her uniquely suited to lead this pioneering organization,” said Tom Callaway, MD, Founder and President of Life Science Partner. “We are confident MDIC and the many stakeholders it serves will benefit greatly from her thoughtful leadership in the months and years to come.”
Ms. Goldberg has demonstrated consistent success in working across the boundaries of government, in both non-profit and private industry and with regulatory bodies to drive consensus. Previously, Ms. Goldberg served as director of The Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership at Tufts University, a program she launched to drive innovation for the university. Ms. Goldberg received her BA from Tufts University and her MBA from Stanford University.
The MDIC, through its public-private partnership between government and regulatory agencies, non-profits, and the medical device industry, aims to advance regulatory science and bring innovative technologies to patients. MDIC coordinates the development of methods, tools, and resources used in managing the medical device life cycle to improve patient access to cutting-edge medical technology.
