The latest episode features Jeffrey Dayno, president and CEO of Harmony Biosciences, who talked about his career journey and moving from academia to an industry position.
“If I knew 10 years ago what I knew today, is that I had all the abilities and learned a lot in terms of being able to step up into the CEO role,” Dayno said on the podcast. “I had been approached over the years [but] I guess was maybe a bit too comfortable in the chief medical officer role … not realizing that I had all the skills and that I was learning along the way.”
