MedPharm General Manager, Dr. Jessica Neil, Awarded Top 25 Women in Business 2023

MedPharm General Manager, Dr. Jessica Neil, has been selected as one of the Triangle Business Journal‘s 2023 Women in Business Award winners. This award honors women in various business categories for their outstanding contributions within their organization and community. Dr. Neil was recognized in the Leaders in STEM category.

Dr. Jessica Neil was among the first employees hired when MedPharm opened its first US facility in Durham, NC. As Director of Tissue Culture, Dr. Neil was integral in building MedPharm’s tissue culture suite from the ground up. Over the years, she has worn many hats, not only helping to expand MedPharm’s capabilities but also working to improve and optimize internal operations. Since starting at MedPharm, Dr. Neil has recruited, mentored, and trained team members from all MedPharm sites. In 2022, Dr. Neil completed her Ph.D. in Pharmacology from the University of Reading and was later appointed MedPharm’s global General Manager.

Speaking on this recognition, MedPharm Senior Vice President of Business Development, Lynn Allen, said: “In addition to her many scientific and technical contributions to MedPharm, Jessica is a leader within our organization and in our industry, having helped our clients solve their technical challenges throughout her tenure. I know I speak for the entire MedPharm team when I say we are delighted to see her receive this well-deserved recognition.”
