Women can’t do science to wonder science woman

Reports

Born and raised in New York, Francesca Wuttke needed to become a scientist, especially because she was once told that girls couldn’t be scientists. In spite of her catholic teacher, Francesca got her PhD in Pharmacology and embarked on a stellar international career. She successfully navigated the worlds of academia, private equity and consultancy before finding her feet in the pharmaceutical world. In 2015, after 4 years with Novartis in Basel, Francesca and her family relocated to Barcelona, where initially she headed up Almirall’s corporate strategy efforts before taking up a position at Merck’s Global Health Innovation (GHI) Fund to lead their European investments. During her time at Merck, Francesca drank the digital cool-aid - an experience which defines her most recent career move. Today, Francesca is the Chief Digital Officer at Almirall, a biopharmaceutical company based in Spain where she is focused on the end to end digital transformation of the whole company. Under her leadership, Almirall is poised to benefit from and fully embrace the many opportunities digital health offers. The company’s accelerator program, the Digital Garden, entering its second year (with a focus on medical dermatology and pharma process optimization), is instrumental in the company’s digital journey. We learn more about life in Barcelona, the city’s thriving start-up scene and how the Barcelona Health Hub is attracting big investment and sponsorship from some of the largest corporations in the world.

Tune in to learn more about Francesca’s Catalan roots, her inevitable relocation to Barcelona and her fascination with accelerating drug discovery.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
