About me

I'm Richard Murphey. I majored in Economics, have never touched a pipette, and haven't taken a science class since high school. But I stumbled into biopharma in my first job out of college and never looked back. Now I wish I majored in biology and CS and got a PhD!

Over the last eight years, I've worked in venture, at venture-backed startups (as a co-founder, first employee and independent consultant), in investment banking, and with Google -- all in life sciences -- and have loved every minute of it (except for a few investment banking all-nighters).

I started Bay Bridge Bio to share my passion for biopharma and create a "melting pot" where talented people from a variety of backgrounds can connect over a shared interest in entrepreneurship and emerging science. We started in fall 2017, and I'm looking forward to offering the program to more people in the future.

Outside of biopharma, I enjoy playing soccer and basketball, spending time outside in the Bay Area (whether on the water, in the mountains, or in the garden), reading, and learning about computers.
