Our shared goal is to benefit the lives of patients and their families through the work we do inside and out of the lab. In addition to pioneering novel therapies at the bench, our team supports a wide range of patient advocacy events to help raise awareness for serious autoimmune and inflammatory diseases.

Who We Are

  • Sean Turman

    Project Coordinator

    Knowing that my small contribution will have an impact on a global scale is what has always driven me to develop novel therapeutics. My grandmother had an autoimmune condition that was debilitating. The therapies we develop today have the potential to increase the quality of life of patients like my grandmother.

  • Lisa N. Pitt

    Head of Regulatory Affairs

    Our company was formed with the vision to produce novel medicines for autoimmune diseases for which there are limited therapies available. Making new therapies available to patients in need is what it is all about. Our teams are very collaborative, dedicated, and empowered, which makes us more efficient and not bogged down by multiple layers of review. I really enjoy what I do and am glad to have had the opportunity to contribute to the start and continued growth of Viela Bio.

  • Jing Zhen

    Analytical Lead, CMC Group

    Viela has the established technical, quality system and ethics of a Big Pharma, with the benefits of a small biotech, including the ability to be nimble. The environment is dedicated and inspiring. As a small team, you know the company is relying on your collective team and your team is also relying on you as an individual.

  • Michele Gunsior, Ph.D.

    Principal Scientist

    We have a lot of really smart people, and a great deal of collaboration internally and externally. We know the limits of our knowledge and where we need to engage experts, and have made strategic hiring decisions to create diversity of thought. The analogy I use with those unfamiliar with Viela is that a path through the woods might lead to a lake, or a high field, maybe dense forest, or cliffs, but ultimately the same path gets you there. That’s what Viela does – we search out the pathway that leads to effective therapies and better health. Our patients are amazing people and collectively we strive – through our research and with our treatments -- to make our patients’ lives easier, to provide respite, to put their disease into remission, so that they can fully enjoy and inhabit the thousands of moments that comprise daily life.
