KGI Hosts Fourth Annual Conference for Women in Life Science Industry
Date:1/26/2011

new this year, three pricing tiers will enable more women to attend.  Options range from $495 for a daylong web conference to $1,995 for the entire conference including materials and meals.

Bartlett said the conference is the only one of its kind for women science and business leaders in the life science industry.

Bonnie Anderson, CEO of Veracyte Inc., a pioneer in the emerging field of molecular cytology, was a panelist two years ago and will be returning as a panelist this year.

"I think it's awesome, women being able to see and hear firsthand from other women that so many different avenues in our careers are achievable and to not ever think that you can't do anything you might want to do," Anderson said.

Statistics show that more women earn PhDs annually than men, and although more highly trained women are going into the life science industry, only 10% of all patents issued go to women.

"We're trying to address the imbalance," Bartlett said.
