Vino Lakshmanan

Associate Research Director, Strategic Consulting 

Vino joined the Galileo team eager to merge her extensive experience in pharmaceutical market research, and her background in neuroscience, with Galileo’s psychology-based approach to research. 

Prior to Galileo, Vino worked across different sectors of the healthcare space. She started her career in clinical research where she collaborated with physicians to run clinical trials which provided pediatric patients access to new and potentially life-changing therapeutics. Here, she saw first-hand the impact these medications could have on patients’ lives, which inspired her to continue working towards that end goal. This led her to healthcare-focused market research and strategy consulting, where she’s worked across a wide range of methodologies and therapeutic areas, with a particular focus on oncology and immunology. 

Vino studied Neurobiology at UC Berkeley, where her interest in understanding the human brain and the mind was initially sparked – a passion that has continued and grown throughout her career. 

Outside of work, Vino enjoys drawing, traveling, trying new restaurants, and going on long walks in Central Park.
