The Medicine Maker Announces its 2023 Power List of Inspirational Pharmaceutical Industry Professionals



New York, US, April 19, 2023 – The Medicine Maker has published its 2023 Power List which celebrates thirty influential and inspirational leaders across three categories in pharmaceutical drug development and manufacture: small molecules, biopharmaceuticals, and advanced medicine.


Those working in the field face new and ongoing challenges, including the COVID-19 pandemic and emerging threats to global health, online and media scrutiny, climate change, and a charged political worldscape. Despite these challenges, inspirational thought leaders continue to emerge and change the ways in which the pharma industry operates. The Medicine Maker power list looks to recognize these individuals and the valuable contribution that they are making. 


Readers of The Medicine Maker were asked to nominate people in the pharma industry enabling progress in the small molecule, biopharmaceutical, and advanced therapy spaces. Nominees were reviewed and thirty individuals worthy of a place on the final list were selected. The top 10 leaders in each field have been announced on The Medicine Maker website and will feature in the March/April print issue.  


Stephanie Sutton, Group Editor of Texere Publishing and The Medicine Maker, says, “The Power List is an annual celebration of the great and good in the pharmaceutical industry. This is an industry that receives a lot of bad press – admittedly some of which is deserved! – but it is also an industry full of inspiring people genuinely dedicated to curing illness and making life better for patients from all walks of life. 


“The 2023 Power List is the culmination of many months of hard work as we strive to deliver a list that is representative – but we emphasize that it is not intended to be definitive; we know there are countless medicine makers across the globe working hard to discover and deliver groundbreaking new therapies, as well as new technologies for development and manufacture. The 2023 Power List celebrates the entire industry by showcasing 30 individuals whose work continues to shape drug development and manufacturing.”


Rob Coker, Deputy Editor of The Medicine Maker, says, “This Power List has been an absolute pleasure to compile. A spotlight on those who wake up every day and strive to improve the world’s quality of life, the Power List 2023 explores the sentiment, as well as the science. Did you know that Rosalind Franklin was this year’s most popular fantasy dinner party guest, closely followed by Jimi Hendrix? That’s some party! I look forward to being involved in the 2024 iteration, celebrating the 10th anniversary of The Medicine Maker, and championing the ingenuity and influence of those in the industry.”

The Power List will also feature in the March/April issue of The Medicine Maker, available to download as a PDF here.
