Welcome to the premiere of Yes! Science!
Showing that science is for everyone, “Yes! Science!” is my new science documentary and demonstration series that features a rotating roster of women and minority individuals in STEM fields. Videos discuss topics of science, career profiles, and fun experiments. Think of the show as a documentary series crossed with TED Talks and Bill Nye.
To kick off the series is a profile video on Dr. Elaine Hamm.
Currently, Dr. Elaine Hamm manages the research and operations of a portfolio of startup biotechnology companies alongside an experienced team at Accele BioPharma and Accele Venture Partners, a biotechnology accelerator and venture fund that identifies, funds, and manages early-stage life science companies.
Dr. Hamm has eight years of professional leadership experience in the commercialization of early-stage pharmaceutical therapeutics and diagnostics with expertise in technology transfer, market analysis, and commercialization of preclinical and clinical stage products. She has designed and served as the Director for several start-up accelerator programs. Dr. Hamm also has experience in equity and non-equity funding of early-stage companies and, in three years, closed almost $8M in equity investment deals, with a focus in the pharmaceutical industry. In addition to her commercialization experience, Dr. Hamm has also worked a Senior Protein chemist in discovery and pre-clinical development of new chemical entities. Dr. Hamm received her Ph.D. in Microbiology from the University of Oklahoma and holds several licensed US and International patents.
