From Bench to Bedside - UH Health System's Dr. Daniel Simon

“I think that Pharma's really learned that, as we say outside of the US or outside of your own walls, is sometimes where you need to look. So, as an interventional cardiologist, devices are all over the world. You got to look, as if you're developing drugs. You know, it's worldwide, and it's definitely outside of just your own scientists in your company. There's no way you could have the pipeline that you would need if you relied on your own internal pools, even no matter how good you are.

– Dr. Daniel Simon, President of Academic & External Affairs and Chief Scientific Officer for the University Hospitals Health System (UH)
