Shaun Grady is Vice-President Business Development Operations, leading AstraZeneca’s transaction execution, due diligence and Alliance and Integration Management function.

This includes late-stage as well as on-market licensing and partnering, M&A, and divestments.

His career background includes roles at ICI, Zeneca, and AstraZeneca in Corporate, Pharmaceuticals and US Legal departments, HR and Business Development.

Shaun has worked on major projects including the AstraZeneca merger, creation of Avecia and Syngenta, acquisition of Cambridge Antibody Technology (CAT), MedImmune and Amylin, and the spin out of Albireo.

I often say being in Business Development is having the best job in AstraZeneca in terms of the motivation, interest and challenging work we do with incredibly smart people from science and business on projects that really make a difference for our partners and patients.
