BELS Brief Chats #4 – Dr Rupert Vessey

Dr Rupert VesseyPresident of Early Development and Research at Bristol Myers Squibbshares his journey from following the family tradition into medicine with Sir John Bell at Oxford University as his advisor while juggling a love and talent for rugby to then honing in on a career in research that led to his leadership role in R&D at Bristol Myers Squibb. 

“The UK is in a great spot right now. I think they need access to experience and expertise, and I think BELS is able to tap into people who have a real passion for what the UK is doing and what it can continue to do. They [members of the BELS community] can lend their expertise and insights. There really isn’t any other organization that can bring that network of people to bear. And I think that now, more than ever, BELS can have an impact.”
