Lotus Mallbris, MD, PhD

Vice President and Global Head of Immunology Product Development, Eli Lilly and Company Lotus Mallbris, MD, PhD, is a passionate executive leader who brings a unique perspective to the industry as she began her career as a trained physician and has diverse experience across the spectrums of patient care, academic research, pharmaceutical drug development and global medical affairs. Through her business mantra “Performance with Care,” Dr. Mallbris has developed a leadership style that cultivates a thriving environment for her colleagues and teams at Lilly. She has continually brought others along with her on her journey to excellence and to leadership. A recent example of this is her specific mentorship of a young Lilly professional whom she recruited to move within Lilly from another country to the US and take on progressively more complex projects and positions within the company. Lotus has blazed a trail like this many times over, and is known for this in the medical field. She is committed to this because it is also important for her two daughters. Dr. Mallbris joined Lilly in 2015 and leads the company’s multifunctional Global Clinical Development and Global Medical Affairs teams across the dermatology, rheumatology and gastroenterology fields. During her tenure at Lilly, she has been responsible for launching 10 late-stage and Phase 3 clinical trial programs across Lilly’s immunology portfolio, specifically within dermatology and rheumatology.

Before joining Lilly, she spent several years at Pfizer and held leadership positions within the dermatology business, serving as the Regional Medical Dermatology Lead and the Global Medical Dermatology Lead. Prior to joining the corporate world, Dr. Mallbris was a practicing physician for more than 10 years, starting her career as a surgeon before transitioning to the field of dermatology. Her decision to shift from academia and being a practicing dermatologist to joining a biopharmaceutical company was rooted in her desire to help more patients and bring them the treatments they need. Dr. Mallbris has always been devoted to patients, and found caring for them incredibly rewarding, but recognized an opportunity to take that devotion to the next level by joining the companies working to create the innovative solutions needed to help patients around the world.
