Adam Wardell

Head Of Strategy, Innovation & Bus Development
Novartis

Adam is the Head of Strategy, Innovation and Business Development at Novartis, and is responsible for shaping future innovative growth opportunities, whether from an internal product development pipeline or from novel fields of research in start-ups and scientific institutions globally. Starting his career at the bedside, Adam has worked across vast aspects of the health landscape through his career, ranging across discovery and product development through to commercialisation and life-cycle management. A ‘system approach’ has provided an appreciation for the different journeys a patient can take through sickness, as well as the large number of other people involved in influencing this pathway – whether this is the nurse who cares for you in hospital, or the scientist that delivers a breakthrough therapy that we must bring to market.
