He is a professor of biology at MIT and professor of systems biology at Harvard Medical School. Appointed by President Barack Obama in 2009, Dr. Lander also serves as co-chair of the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology.
Joining Dr. Lander in the program will be C.A. Webb, the Executive Director of the New England Venture Capital Association. C.A. has spent her career in entrepreneurial roles with mission driven, early stage and high growth organizations. Her career has focused on breakthrough business models in a diverse array of industries including retail and packaged goods (Whole Foods Market), consumer internet technology (Care.com), sustainability (Preserve Products), historic preservation (Trinity Boston Foundation), public education (Boston Collegiate Charter School), and publishing (Fast Company magazine). She earned her undergraduate degree at Wellesley College and MBA at Simmons School of Management.
