Autumn Ehnow is the Chief Executive Officer of Curae Pharma360 and also serves as Executive Vice President, Policy & Strategic Market Access at Medicines360, the nonprofit parent company of Curae. Autumn’s two decades as a pharmaceutical and nonprofit leader, and personal experiences when needed medications were out of reach, have informed her drive and dedication to addressing the gap in equitable access to crucial medicines. With a strong track record of structuring and managing business partnerships in the U.S. and across the globe, and her role establishing the commercial operations at Curae, Autumn sets the strategy and guides plans to scale the organization. Autumn has spent 10 years at for-profit pharmaceutical companies and over 15 years in non-profit pharmaceutical entities with a history of leading successful partnerships with both governmental agencies and private pharmaceutical companies to develop new medicines for both small and large molecule products. At the Institute for OneWorld Health, she was integral in forming and managing the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation grant and the multi-company partnership that brought semi-synthetic Artemisinin to market. As part of the original founding team of Medicines360, she helped define and lead the program strategy and implementation that brought the hormonal IUD to market in the USA, breaking down barriers to access in the process. She is a frequent presenter on health equity topics, and holds a BS in Molecular and Cellular Biology.
