Scott Johnson, who has been living with multiple sclerosis for 34 years, is using his acumen as a business consultant and serial entrepreneur to reform a system for medical research and drug development that has failed to produce new patient treatments for millions living with chronic and debilitating diseases.

Featured in Fortune (September 2006) as a "lifesaving shakeup in the world of medical research," Johnson's big idea has since delivered on that promise by (1) proving that basic science can be accelerated and (2) creating connections between academic scientists and those who commercially develop drugs. This will mean the faster development and delivery of patient treatments and cures.
