Video Interview—Johnson & Johnson Innovation

Rowan Chapman talks from this year's ASCO about what innovation means to J&J.

As part of our new video interview series, we sat down with Rowan Chapman, head of J&J Innovation California, to get her thoughts on what the big pharma company wants to see from its potential life science partners.

Chapman explained how J&J Innovation is the “Big Red Door” when it comes to biomedical research partnering, and the broad strokes the unit uses when it comes to nurturing and incubating talent.

She also discussed the Next Big Thing for J&J—disease prevention, rather than just treatment—and said that despite the risks being higher in biomedical research than ever before, she never sees a time when entrepreneurs in healthcare will stop striving to create new medicines.
