How Raj is building a better working world

“This is an interesting time for the life sciences sector. There’s been a real shift over the last few years in how this sector operates, and an increased focus on patient outcomes. I love working with our teams to find the opportunities that enable Canadian companies to address the most pressing health challenges, and make their mark on the world.”
