Michael Clayman, M.D., and Neil Bodick, M.D., Ph.D., founded Flexion Therapeutics more than 12 years ago. Prior to that, they spent a combined 35 years at Eli Lilly and Company. Their last five years at Lilly were spent working in Chorus, a full-service and autonomous R&D unit within Lilly Research Labs. Prior to becoming CEO at Flexion, Clayman served as VP of Lilly Research Labs while Bodick was chief medical officer for Chorus.
