From MSc to CEO

abstract

In this inspiring keynote presentation, Onno van de Stolpe, founder and CEO of Galapagos, will divulge on his career path culminating in the founding of Galapagos. The successful clinical-stage biotech company is developing a number of molecules to treat inflammation and other diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and cystic fibrosis.
Galapagos identified JAK1 as a target for auto-immune diseases in 2004, and subsequently developed candidate drug ‘filgotinib’ acting against JAK1. Filgotinib has been used by over 900 patients in phase 2 studies and showed excellent safety and efficacy. Filgotinib is potentially the best treatment option for rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn’s disease and is now in phase 3 development.
This presentation addresses Onno's career and the founding of Galapagos and also his experiences as a CEO.
