Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw

India's first biotech entrepreneur Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw founded Biocon in 1978 when she was 25 by partnering with an Irish firm to make industrial enzymes. Her goal to make healthcare more accessible for all Indians has driven her to search for a cheaper model of drug development. "We simply cannot afford to develop drugs that cost 1-3 billion to develop, because these drugs will not actually reach people who really need (them) the most. We've got to change this model. "
