This week the international organization Women in Bio puts on their annual dinner and a new chapter of the organization holds their kick off event in San Francisco. We spoke with Debra Bowes, President Emeritus of Women in Bio about their mission to support women in life science careers. Ms. Bowes’ own career in bio extends back 30 years and includes stints at MedImmune, Amylin Pharmaceuticals, Senecor-J & J, and Pfizer. In 2006 Debra started Chevy Chase BioPartners, a consulting firm specializing in planning and licensing for life-science start ups. We’re delighted to have her to mendelspod to talk about women in bio.
