with Susan Windham-Bannister, PhD

Bentley University’s Center for Integration of Science and Industry, kicks off its fall lecture series, “The Innovator’s Business” with key-note speaker Susan Windham-Bannister, PhD, President and CEO of Massachusetts Life Sciences Center.  Join us  on October 17th to learn about the role of the public sector in promoting innovation.

In addition to her work at MLSC, Susan has been instrumental in the successful launch of a number of well-known therapeutics, medical devices and novel biomarkers.  During her 35 years of contributing to the life sciences she has:
