Sean Bo­hen's break from bio­phar­ma is over. The ex-As­traZeneca CMO has re­tired his Big Phar­ma jer­sey and is now — hap­pi­ly — run­ning a lit­tle biotech

The last I had heard about Sean Bo­hen, he had stepped out of his high-pro­file job as chief med­ical of­fi­cer at As­traZeneca at the be­gin­ning of 2019 as CEO Pas­cal So­ri­ot trig­gered a broad-rang­ing R&D shake­up. And then, ear­li­er this week, I got a chance to catch up.

It turns out that Bo­hen de­cid­ed at the time that he would not just jump in­to a new job in the boom­ing bio­phar­ma busi­ness. As an on­col­o­gist, he had worked on the big pro­grams at As­traZeneca, and be­fore that he was at Genen­tech. That was good for a tick­et to just about any­place in the big bio­phar­ma world. But he felt it was time to stop and think things through.
