Mr. Mark Alles, Chairman & CEO, Celgene gave the 2018 Washington State Life Science Summit keynote address. Well known to Washington’s life science community, Celgene is a global leader in the discovery, development, and commercialization of products for the treatment of cancer and other severe, immune, inflammatory conditions. Mr. Alles has led Celgene since 2016 and currently chairs the executive committee. Prior to The Summit, we were fortunate to have him answer a couple of questions about the Juno Therapeutics acquisition, the workforce pipeline problem, and the future of cancer research.
