Ilya Budik, Board of Directors

Mr. Ilya Budik is the most recent addition to GLN’s Board of Directors. For the past 6 years, Ilya has served in various managerial roles in the life science industry, and over the last 3 years founded and grown Imagine Bio, a boutique consultancy which advises rising stars in the life science industry with strategy, partnerships, and investments. One of his successes was leading the turnaround of a struggling biotech company, NeuroQuest, which is today one of the leaders in early diagnosis for Alzheimer’s disease involved in a 10,000-patient trial throughout the US and Australia. Previously Ilya worked in global finance at Johnson and Johnson, studied finance and biochemistry at Miami University of Ohio, was awarded the President Harrison Scholarship – the school’s most academically distinguished scholarship, and completed the Executive Training Program at Tel Aviv University’s Recanati Business School.

Ilya is a strong believe in the mission of GLN, sees great potential to expand GLN’s mission in the DC area and beyond, and is grateful for the opportunity to contribute his skills, experiences, and a diverse global network to help take GLN to new heights.
