Jim Tananbaum is the chief executive officer and founder of Foresite Capital. Jim Tananbaum, M.D., has been in the medical field for the better part of the last 25 years and it sure seems like his best years are still right around the corner. Tananbaum was recent awarded by being placed on Forbe’s Midas List for Top Tech Investors — for the third straight time. The Midas List showcases tech investors who are on the precipice of making a huge splash in the industry. More good news is coming out of Tananbaum’s camp as Foresite Capital has acquired an epic venture partner by the name of Dr. Molly He. You can also visit LinkedIn for more details.
In order to make it in the healthcare field you have to always be pushing in order to innovate the field and keep ahead of your competition. The addition of Dr. He is a huge movement in the right direction for both Jim Tananbaum and the rest of Foresite Capital. Dr. He comes on board with decades of experience in various fields of medical and scientific research and she comes highly decorated.
Dr. Tananbaum made sure to welcome his new partner with a warm statement by saying, “Dr. He is one of the most respected scientific researchers in the area of next-generation sequencing, and we are thrilled to welcome her to the team.” Jim Tananbaum continued by saying, “With her extensive expertise in genomics and drug development and her remarkable track record of leadership, she will be an invaluable resource to Foresite as we continue to expand and diversify our portfolio of transformational companies.”
Dr. He’s background is as extensive as it is experienced. Dr. He came from Illumina prior to Foresite Capital where she was a senior director for the global protein reagent program. Before Dr. He worked with Illumina she was working for Pacific Biosciences in the field of protein sciences. If that doesn’t impress you she already had a decade in pharmaceutical research before going to Pacific Biosciences. This seems like a mutually agreeable partnership and we anticipate huge returns for both Foresite Capital and Dr. He herself. More details can be found on Crunchbase.
