Who joins Wellcome Leap?
Our programs are actively led and orchestrated by a Program Director who adjusts, iterates, and directs teams working together so as to solve problems they cannot solve alone. You should join Wellcome Leap if you want an opportunity to pursue what others may think too crazy an idea, to challenge an entire industry, or to catalyze the formation of a new one. But don’t plan to come for a career. Program Directors come to run a project that can change the world. And many do.
This kind of work is hard.
The hard is what makes it great.
