Biogen Idec Inc. Chief Executive George Scangos is trying to solve a problem of his own creation: He must replenish an early-stage drug research pipeline that he decimated after taking over the biotechnology company in 2010.

Biogen exited oncology and cardiovascular research and is now targeting drugs to treat neurological and autoimmune conditions.
