Af­ter build­ing pipelines from Glax­o­SmithK­line to Flag­ship, Paul Pe­ter Tak takes the helm at an un­der-the-radar on­colyt­ic virus play­er

Paul Pe­ter Tak has done it all: From a pro­fes­sor­ship in his na­tive Nether­lands to the head of im­munoin­flam­ma­tion R&D at Glax­o­SmithK­line, from lead­ing small biotechs to more re­cent­ly join­ing the ven­ture world as a Flag­ship part­ner, he’s of­ten found him­self in roles he wouldn’t have imag­ined him­self.

His lat­est ap­point­ment as CEO of on­colyt­ic virus com­pa­ny Can­del Ther­a­peu­tics is one of them.
