Why I'm a JPAL

Innovation will drive our successes of the future. It is a privilege to help growing companies identify and shape their strategies, and build connections, and, in turn, be inspired to think differently by those pushing the envelope with their approach to healthcare.


Gayle holds a PhD in Neuroscience from Princeton University and bachelor’s degrees in Physics and Engineering Physics (Electrical Engineering) from Oregon State University. She worked in Proteomics at Bristol-Myers Squibb and led the Personalized Healthcare group at Siemens Corporate Research before joining Janssen in 2011 as Director of Integrative Solutions and Informatics. Subsequently she held positions as Head of Translational Research and Precision Medicine Research IT (2016) and Head Intelligent Automation Pharm IT (2019), before her current role as Senior Director, Neuroscience Data Science.


"...no good model ever accounted for all the facts, since some data was bound to be misleading if not plain wrong."

- Jim Watson

Fun fact:

In college, I spent two summers working in the tiny village of Naknek, Alaska at a salmon plant. The lessons I learned about teamwork continue to be of value today.
