Speakers bio

Vlad Grecu, business developer at Catalyze for Life Sciences and Health projects. Medicinal chemist by background (MSci University of Nottingham, UK) driven by identifying companies ready to fill unmet clinical needs. My goal is to ensure that SMEs interested in non-dilutive financing are filling an application for the right project and at the right timing. Thrilled to have the opportunity to return to Barcelona where I completed my second masters (Master in Management, EADA Barcelona) and experienced living in one of the most vibrant cities of the world.

Eva Moreno, business developer at Catalyze for Life Sciences and Health projects. Given my passion for Life Sciences and a background in Veterinary Sciences (Madrid) and PhD in Molecular Oncology (Utrecht University, NL), I seek to bridge the gaps that exist between great innovative ideas and concrete, accessible applications positively impacting all stakeholders. I like to support early-stage organisations as well as researchers in developing a long-term sustainable funding strategy. I pride myself on being able to “think outside the box” in regards to a funding pathway, by tailoring the needs of the organisation.
