Coffee Talk with Jacquelyn Awigena-Cook ’05 (Major Focused – Cell Biology/Biochemistry)
Join us to learn how Jacquelyn translated her Cell Biology/Biochemistry background into a Senior Manager of Regulatory Intelligence and Policy at Celgene. While on campus Jacquelyn did research with Professors Marie Pizzorno and after graduating took a job with Johnson & Johnson. When she had the chance, she moved with J&J to the United Kingdom, and rose to become Program Manager, Pharmacovigilance Policy, and, later, an Associate Director for J&J. While this was underway, she earned an MBA and a Law degree in London. Last year, she left J&J for Celgene, where she is Senior Manager, EMEA Regulatory Intelligence & Policy. As such, she oversees regulatory compliance in the European market, and is responsible for programs that watch for drug side effects (the pharmacovigilance part of the job).
