Scott smallScott Wagers, MD - The "Consortium Whisperer" - When teams of individuals with diverse backgrounds think together to develop ideas and solve problems, they generate know-how that is hard to get in any other way.

Having had the privilege to bear witness to this process in more than 10.000 hours of dialogue in multi-disciplinary and multi-stakeholder teams across many different scientific domains Scott brings an unusual depth of experience to each project.

He provides both intellectual input as well as guidance on the principles and processes of working well together in consortia. 

Scott and  the professional team at BioSci Consulting have helped develop and deliver a number of high-profile consortia totalling more than 179 million in funding:
