“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
- Eleanor Roosevelt
Taylour Treadwell received her B.S in Pharmaceutical Science with a minor in Spanish from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, in 2019. During her time there she worked as a research assistant in both academic and industry settings, further confirming her passion for science in the Pharmaceutical Industry. After graduation in 2019, Taylour began her career at Eli Lilly and Company as a scientist in the first cohort of the Talent Development Academy Leadership Development Program (TDA LDP). Through this program, she contributed to various large molecule drug discovery efforts in both diabetes and immunology, engaged in clinical trial regulatory work, then advanced efforts toward the readiness and launch of medicines in the medical affairs space.
During her time at Lilly, she’s received an innovator award for her scientific contributions and co-founded the TDA New Hire Network; an internal organization that orients, connects, and develops new scientists within the company. As a Manager focused on regulatory and sourcing strategies for global clinical trials, Taylour creates and oversees strategies in immunology and neurodegeneration which ensure patients have access to the necessary medicines for the trial duration. She also is an active mentor in the STEM community, and leads an internal development program for top talent across the R&D space called The Emerging Talent Program.
Taylour realized she needed Women & Hi Tech after attending her first event, the End of Year Holiday Celebration, a few years ago. The impressive representation from multifarious tech sectors piqued her interest, but the community of women and allies committed to improving the STEM fields for women through development opportunities and genuine connections made her stay. In her role she aspires to strengthen existing community connections and create additional strategic partnerships within Indiana that ignite curiosity and empower the next generation of women in STEM.
Taylour currently lives in downtown Indianapolis and loves to spend time with her friends, family, and fur-baby, Jade. She enjoys trying new restaurants in the city, attending art expos, experiencing concerts and live sports, and travelling the world in her free time.
