Business of Bioscience Focus Track Friday
Please save the date for our second Focus Track Friday of the year. Focus Track Fridays provide KGI students with the opportunity to meet industry speakers discussing the changing landscape of business and technology.
After continental breakfast and the official welcome, the morning will feature workshops for students interested in careers in business. While the initial sessions are mainly of interest to business focus track students, all faculty, staff and students are encouraged to attend two provocative sessions about the future of pharmaceuticals and biotechnology.
At lunch, we are pleased to welcome Dr. Stephen Eck, VP of Astelas (and former VP of Eli Lilly and Pfizer). Eck will be talking about "Genomics, Market Segmentation and the Implications for the Pharmaceutical Industry." After lunch, Ryan Bethencourt, Joel Dudley and Raymond McCauley will be discussing their current startup efforts in a panel entitled "Open, cheap and fast: New models of biotechnology entrepreneurship." We will have a reception for the speakers after the panel. The tentative time for the lunch is 11:45-1:15 and for the panel is 1:30-2:45.
