    • LifeSci Search repeatedly over delivered as we’ve built out our team and board. With their deep biotech and pharma domain expertise, they understood exactly our needs and the profiles we were after. They sourced high caliber candidates quickly, and have extraordinary reach among high caliber and profile people worldwide. Life Science Search offers high, but soft, touch exemplary recruiting services, while also helping in all sorts of tangential areas. They’re a full corporate partner, not a recruiting firm.

    • Building a contemporary competitive Biotechnology company requires premier talent coupled with a game-changing product line to win. Choosing the right talent search partner is a major success factor. The team at LifeSci Search “gets” our science and our business. Their innovative and courageous search style does not disappoint. They dove right in, listened to us and learned our requirements. Their experience brought forth questions and discussions that helped us to frame our requirements more precisely. And the results of their efforts have brought us talent that have set us stronger on the path to business success. I’ve purchased executive search for over 25 years. The LifeSci team has rewritten the playbook. They are simply, the best.
