President & CEO, Halloran Consulting Group
Laurie founded Halloran Consulting Group in 1998. Her vision in forming the company was Life Science that Works: Product, Process and People.

She has built a successful consultancy of likeminded experts who are dedicated to the idea that every company deserves the best practices and know-how in the life science world, regardless of its size, its name or its financial situation. She is recognized as an industry expert in improving the organizational effectiveness of those companies.
Earlier in her career, Laurie worked in the outsourcing services realm during PAREXEL International’s rapid growth phase, where she developed competency based programs for several departments within the organization, and led the integration of the company’s European operating units acquired during her tenure. She later led clinical development at OXiGENE and Antigenics,
