Core values


We do what's right even if it's harder. Why? Success without integrity equals failure. That means we like to win, not cheat or cut corners.

Innovate and Create

The mainstream just isn't for us. We're constantly thinking outside of the circle and finding creative and innovative approaches to everyday problems.


People First

Growth happens on every level.  We are firm believers in "People over Policy" and ensuring that everyone feels supported in their personal and professional growth.

Work Hard, Play Harder

We have a "Die on the Treadmill" mentality and a "Wineglass Half-full" philosophy. We value commitment and positivity in every approach.

Anthony Aukskalnis

Preclinical Talent Acquisition Consultant

I graced the clinical research world at Atrium Health with my unparalleled charm and wit for 4 magical years. While working, I somehow earned a Masters from Johns Hopkins that they cannot legally take back; I’ve locked it in a triple coded safe regardless. I was introduced to Biotech Partners at a biotech conference in Raleigh, NC and quickly realized we had a shared passion for connecting world-class talent with industry leaders.
