PM360 Exclusive Interview with 2021 Uber ELITE Winner Stéphane Bancel, CEO, Moderna

This year’s winner of the Uber ELITE Award is Stéphane Bancel, CEO, Moderna. Each year, our ELITE Awards honor 100 of the most influential people in the healthcare and life sciences industries. The Uber ELITE represents the individual who most exemplifies what it means to be ELITE and stands out above all of the winners due to his or her impact on the industry and the world as a whole.

Under Stéphane’s leadership, Moderna was able to develop a vaccine for COVID-19 with an efficacy of 94% in under a year. Previously, the fastest a vaccine had ever been developed was the four years it took for the mumps vaccine. As of April 2021, the company has delivered approximately 132 million doses globally with plans to deliver a base of 800 million by the end of 2021 with the potential to reach one billion doses.

In an exclusive video interview, PM360 spoke with Stéphane about his career to this point, the early days of Moderna, what it took to develop the COVID-19 so quickly, the future possibilities of mRNA technology for medicine, and much more.
