Boston – November 30, 2016 –  Pierre Jacquet, M.D., Ph.D., global head of L.E.K. Consulting’s Biopharmaceuticals & Life Sciences practice and a managing director and partner in the firm’s Boston office, has been named to the Board of Advisors of Life Science Cares.

Life Science Cares is non-profit committed to putting the human values that the life sciences industry represents to work in the Boston area to improve lives and fight problems related to poverty.

“It is an honor to be part of Life Science Cares, an organization that embodies the true good that life science companies stand for and applies it in our community,” Dr. Jacquet said.

One of the recent initiatives that Life Science Cares supported was Boston STEM Week in Boston Public Schools. The group helped put life science professionals in 8th grade classrooms to inspire students to pursue studies and perhaps careers in the life sciences.

Said Rob Perez, Founder and Chair of Life Science Cares, “Our organization depends on the input, time and energy of leaders like Pierre Jacquet. We are so grateful for his work, and for the overall support of L.E.K. Consulting.”
