René Hansen

Global Director Marketing & Access Innovation UCB

René has been playing a driving role in the transformation of uCb from a hybrid group into a fully focused biopharma company. But we’re most interested in the strategic partnership René created between UCB and the US based Health 2.0 company PatientsLikeMe, whom you heard from yesterday. The partnership aims to build and connect with the community of epilepsy patients and their caregivers and is the first time a pharma company has openly engaged with an online community to study the real-world impact of epilepsy. We expect more partnerships like this to come, so we’re fascinated by what René has discovered so far.
