The Power List 2021 – Biopharmaceuticals

Lewis J. Ort Professor of Ophthalmology at John Hopkins University; and Director at the Center for Nanomedicine

“The most defining moments of my career involve the many people who have influenced my thinking, and with whom I have worked to create new methods to make drugs safer and more effective. Big problems are rarely solved by individuals. Thus, my most defining moments include: meeting my mentors, including Robert Langer of MIT, and Henry Brem and Drew Pardoll of Johns Hopkins; the opportunity to work with scores of amazing students, postdoctoral fellows, and colleagues at Johns Hopkins; the vision of the Wilmer Eye Institute led by Peter J. McDonnell to start a center of excellence focused on the intersection of medicine and nanotechnology, and being asked to be its founding director; and support from the generous philanthropists and investors who have catalyzed our discoveries, allowed many of them to be tested in human clinical trials, and helped maximize the good our inventions can do for humanity.”
