Dr. Jim Tananbaum has apparently decided that 2017 is going to be his year. We recently saw that the founder and CEO of Foresite Capital gained another accolade for his mantle. Jim Tananbaum was once again named to Forbe’s Midas List of Top Tech Investors for the third year in a row. The Midas List makes sure to focus on venture capitalists who area surefire bets to do something big in the future with their work. To complement Tananbaum’s recent accolade we can also announce the addition of Dr. Molly He to the Foresite Capital team as a venture partner.
Dr. Molly He comes to Foresite Capital on the heels of a hugely successful career. Dr. He had previously worked as the senior director for scientific research at the company Illumina. There she was responsible for a slew of different tasks including the global protein reagent innovation division. Dr. He has worked in the medical industry for decades, spending 10 years in pharmaceuticals before jumping into protein sciences over at Pacific Biosciences. Dr. He’s track record is as long as it is strong and at every step of the way she has proven herself both a capable leader and an innovative scientific researcher for her field.
Dr. Jim Tananbaum was quick to sing the praises of his new venture partner with a released statement. Dr. Tananbaum called Dr. He, “One of the most respected scientific researchers in the area of next generation sequencing, and we are thrilled to welcome her to the team.” Dr. Jim Tananbaum went on to sing her praises for her work in genomics as well as drug development. He made sure to praise her “remarkable track record of leadership” and closed by calling Dr. He an ‘invaluable resource to Foresite’. It’s pretty clear to anyone that Dr. Tananbaum is planning on making Foresite Capital a mainstay in the healthcare world for years to come.
According to Biz Journals, Dr. Jim Tananbaum has been a force within the healthcare world for over 25 years. He’s an entrepreneur by trade with extensive and successful investing experiences. We are eager to see just how Foresite Capital grows in the coming months. More details can be found on Speakerpedia.
