Date:9/21/2007

CLAREMONT, Calif., Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Keck Graduate Institute (KGI) today announced a partnership with Smith College to create the "Next Generation Bioscience Leaders" forum to help women managers advance in the life sciences industry.

KGI will host the week-long forum from Jan. 13-18, 2008. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from and network with women executives from pharmaceutical, medical device and biotechnology companies along with faculty from KGI.

"We are delighted to team up with Smith College to provide this important opportunity for women scientists and business professionals," said Sheldon Schuster, Ph.D., KGI's president. "This forum is an example of KGI's commitment to educating the life sciences leaders of tomorrow. As biotech companies grow and mature, they will need to develop and retain the best and brightest female staff -- and this forum will help them do just that."

Demand for biotechnology professionals continues to rise, with over 100,000 new jobs added in the last five years, according to the US Department of Labor. Furthermore, a recent study by KGI shows that over 80 percent of new job openings at the top biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies call for workers with skill sets in both business and science.

Offering a comprehensive perspective on the biotechnology industry, the forum will include seminars, roundtable discussions and breakout sessions that will be held at KGI, other Claremont Colleges and Casa 425, a brand new luxury hotel within walking distance from KGI. Rick Winningham, CEO of Theravance, Inc., a biopharmaceutical company, will give the forum's keynote address.

Topics to be discussed include:

dynamics, opportunities and threats

-- The DNA of biotech organizations -- business models, project

management, product life cycle and more
