Baldwin, Eric -
I am a drug discovery scientist/entrepreneur who
has over 17 years of Pharmaceutical industry experience leading teams that have solved difficult biophysical, structural and chemical problems in pre-clinical research. During the past 8 years I have managed internal and external biophysical chemistry resources in two multi-national pharmaceutical companies. Over this time I have built up a network of key partners that can be relied upon to bring projects in on time and on budget. In 2011 I founded a drug discovery contract research management firm to assist biotech entrepreneurs who wish to leverage vendors to rapidly advance their research goals. Startups can maximize “virtual operations” when they buy assay results and utilize advanced technologies as services, rather than build costly infrastructure. I assist drug hunters in defining and building core internal capability and managing external facing operations. My discovery experience, negotiating skills, and project coordination expertise can help the next-generation of drug discovery leaders create market-ready value.

Eric obtained his degrees in Biochemistry from Purdue (BS  1982) and then his Ph.D from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (1990). He was NIAID post-doctoral Fellow at the NCI and a staff scientist with the NCI structure-based drug design lab.  From 1994 to 2003, he was a crystallographer with the Upjohn Company (Pharmacia).  He was the group leader for the crystallography group at Eli Lilly Company for 2 years, before taking on the role of Director of Macromolecular Crystallography at Bristol-Myers Squibb. He founded a consulting and drug discovery company, Natural Discovery LLC in 2011.
