Julie began her career 25 years ago in Merck, US as a scientist doing basic research on inflammatory diseases. As her interest in data generation and management for in-vivo experiments and clinical studies grew, she advanced her career in Clinical Development. This provided her great opportunities to take on various global and regional leadership roles in Information Technology and Product Development across different countries, primarily in the US, Belgium, China, Japan and now Singapore.
Julie’s global footprint brings her to Singapore to establish MSD’s Global Innovation Hub with an investment of S$8 million in state-of-the-art technologies that aims to harness digital innovation for better healthcare. Under Julie’s leadership, the Hub brings together a wide span of teams including IT Risk Management and Security, Data Science and Analytics, Global Application/Technology Platforms, ERP, Cloud Services, IT Managed Services, Digital Product Solutions, Knowledge Management and IT Client Services.
