Chief Science Officers and Chief Medical Officers have a tough job—organizing and managing R&D uncovering new disruptive discovery and development models; assessing the impact of pricing, reimbursement, and regulation—all while raising capital, working with investors, and strategizing appropriate exits.
NewYorkBIO’s CSO Leadership Series is designed to help bioscience CSO/CMOs to engage with experienced industry leaders and address the unique challenges associated with the job. Attendees will gain guidance on strategic planning, exit planning, and insight into the trends affecting the future of medical research in the emerging life science space.
Limited to 25 attendees, the CSO Leadership Series is restricted to life science executives (no service providers beyond the sponsor) and will offer a unique opportunity to hear directly from—and to network with—New York’s life science leadership.
