One of Dimitrios' first assignments in Manhattan big firm corporate life was to help fund the mapping of the human genome. That was his first assignment in the world of biologics and served as a foundational step for everyone. It not only transformed Dimitrios' perspective, but served as an inflection point for all of genomic research for everyone forever. Dimitrios played a very small role in helping the scientists map the human genome's 3.2 billion pairs.
Dimitrios' formal legal training came from working in-house at several pharmaceutical companies, medical device companies, and biologics companies. Understanding the legal complexities of cGMP manufacturing, union and non-union employee matters, and commercial sale agreements is best learned on the job. Coordinating mergers, acquisitions, collaborations, development and supply agreements, and all of the ancillary facets of practicing life science corporate work is an exciting and dynamic career path.
Ignoring technology is impossible. Opportunity came to Dimitrios to run a technology company and oversee its vast technology patent estate. This taught Dimitrios that technology can be a terribly useful tool in making human work more efficient and precise. Technology itself must be used efficiently to allow us to spend our time in the highest and best use.
