About this event

The Life Science industry (consisting of biotech, pharma, med tech, devices, diagnostics and their collaborators) shares many attributes of other industries, but with very long product life cycles and time to revenue, and a highly regulated environment, several things make this industry unique in the challenges faced by its executives and Boards. This peer group seeks to learn from each other in both the commonalities and the nuanced uniqueness.

Who is hosting? Barbara Troupin
