In this episode of Medsider Radio, we’re sitting down with Patricia Zilliox, wo has spent her entire career working in ophthalmology, including 30 years at American-Swiss medical company Alcon. In 2017, Patricia became CEO of Eyevensys, a biotech company in the clinical stage of making a drug delivery system to fight various eye diseases.
In this interview, Patricia gives advice for navigating the complicated world of regulatory affairs, the dos and don’ts of planning clinical trials, and why raising capital is the most frustrating part of her job.
Before we jump into the conversation, I wanted to mention a few things:
