John Brooks III of the Joslin Diabetes Center

Program: 
Date: 
Sunday, July 10, 2011 - 10:00pm

Our guest, John Brooks III, a well-known leader in the life-sciences industry, is the new president and CEO of Joslin Diabetes Center.

John became chairman of Joslin's board in May 2010 and is leaving that role to take the chief executive position. He is replacing Dr. Kenneth Quickel, who retired as Joslin's president and CEO in October 2010.

John has co-founded three life sciences companies, including Insulet, which offers an insulin-pump system for people with type 1 diabetes.

He has been principal of Healthcare Capital Consulting, which advises early-stage life-sciences companies, and a founder of Prism VentureWorks, which raised more than $1.25 billion in capital.

John is CEO of Reflectance Medical, which offers technology for non-invasive monitoring of critically ill patients.

Before moving fully into his new role, John will be transitioning out of his industry positions.

In the spirit of full disclosure, host Steve D'Agostino does social-media work for Joslin Diabetes Center.
