Scott Rocklage remains a priceless asset to any company. He has worked in many top companies as CEO, Chairman and President. Not many business experts have such formidable profile. It is easy to be completely carried away when reading the profile of this noble figure. One of the companies where he distinguished himself before joining 5AM Ventures is Cubist Pharmaceuticals; he was both Chairman and CEO there. At Nycomed Salutar, he occupied same positions before moving to Salutar and Catalytica to oversee its Research and Design department. He did meritoriously well at Ilypsa as Co-President and Chairman. Space and time will not permit the complete list of companies Rocklage meritoriously managed. His long stay in the Pharmaceuticals definitely has a hand in this feat having been around since the last three decades.
Rocklage solid educational background contributed in no small measure to his success in life. He was at the University of California for his bachelor degree in Chemistry before heading for the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) for a doctorate degree in the same field. There are indications that he got some inspirations from the exploits of the 2005 Noble Prize Winner in Chemistry, Richard R. Schrock because while at MIT, Rocklage used the laboratory dedicated to Schrock in conducting researches.
Inventions depict one of the highest levels of scholarly works. Rocklage is one of the few to have gotten to such level. At the moment, he has well over 30 U.S. Patents to his name, he is well known to the Federal Drug Administration for quality drugs. The drugs he discovered got speedy approval from the FDA. Some of these drugs are Cubicin, Teslascan and Omniscan.
From all indications, Rocklage is a bundle of talents. He seems to be good at every thing, one of the most rounded scholars today. When it comes to writing, he can rival any author in the pharmaceuticals with more than a hundred publications to his credit. His leadership and entrepreneurial prowess is unquestionable as he has all the proofs. Reading through the exploit of this distinguished personality brings me to the submission that outstanding success does not jump on people; individuals who have it paid the prize.
