Róisín Wallace: When I started out, there was little to no R&D in Ireland

Viatris Ireland’s Róisín Wallace reflects on her career in STEM and shares the lessons she learned on her leadership journey.


Róisín Wallace started out in the world of chemistry but now leads the global device organisation for pharma company Viatris in Ireland.


After graduating from analytical science at Dublin City University, Wallace moved to the UK to join Pfizer, where she worked for more than 15 years in various R&D roles. In 2011 she joined Mylan, which merged with Pfizer’s Upjohn business last year to create Viatris.


“From early on I realised how much there was to learn about how drugs are discovered, how they are assessed for safety and efficacy, and how they are robustly manufactured to ensure consistent quality in supply to patients,” she said.
