Having been involved in the developed of one of RTW’s portfolio companies from its infancy, I have unique insight into the team’s passion for innovative science, desire to advance therapies that address unmet medical needs and their commitment to educate and advocate for niche patient communities. I am humbled to be on this journey with such inspiring colleagues.
