Acquiring a PhD in biology takes years of devoted work in the lab. So why would anyone take on and juggle an MBA program in parallel? Well, if you’re Yaron Suissa, it’s because you believe in truly bridging the chasm between academia and industry. Yaron is a leader in raising awareness to the importance of equipping researchers — for whom continuing in academia is not an option or not their preference – with the skills and mindset to thrive in industry, where society needs their contribution immensely. As co-founder and former CEO of JLM-Biocity Yaron has been instrumental in bringing together a community of professionals from life sciences and biomed to brand Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel’s Biomed and life-sciences industry.
