Speaker: Karsten Baumgaertel | Associate Director, Translational Biology

Karsten BaumgaertelKarsten is currently the Associate Director of Translational Biology at Travere Therapeutics. Karsten is a passionate scientist with almost two decades of research experience.  When he embarked on this career path, he was motivated by scientific curiosity and the desire to help people who are suffering from disease.  This continues to be Karsten’s driving force.  It inspires him to work hard and to take on challenges that may seem insurmountable.  In the past years working in biotech, Karsten has been fortunate enough to witness how novel therapies can impact the lives of patients. Karsten feels that this is his calling, in particular in rare diseases that are neglected and have no available therapies.  To find treatments for these diseases, he believes we need to have all stakeholders involved. Karsten is excited to work with patient groups, academic and governmental institutions, and specialized research laboratories to discover and develop new ways of treating patients. Karsten firmly believes that together we will make a difference.
