Several former employees of biotech hedge fund OrbiMed have alleged that Sam Isaly, the firm’s founder & managing partner, sexually harassed his female colleagues for years, according to an investigation by STAT.
Isaly is a 72-year-old investor who has long been revered among the biotech community for his ability to pick stocks. But at OrbiMed, former employees told STAT he routinely demeaned women and harassed them. One woman told the news outlet that he repeatedly showed her hardcore pornography just to laugh as she reacted in disgust.
“I’m scarred,” Isaly’s former assistant, Delilah Burke told STAT. “I still have anxiety from that job — now, years later.”
