Chief Medical Officers In Biotechs Finally Have Their Own Conference, 6-7 May 2013, Boston, MA

For the first time, Chief Medical Officers at biotechs will have their own conference thanks to the idea from Dr Elizabeth Stoner, Managing Director of MPM Capital. Valerie Bowling, Executive Director of The Conference Forum, the organizer of the event says, “We are grateful to Dr Stoner’s idea for the conference and her insights into the unique challenges CMOs face every day at small to mid-size biotechs.”    

The Chief Medical Officer Summit takes place in Boston on May 6-7, 2013 and is dedicated to accomplishing two goals:

  1. To bring together CMO executives to address the unique challenges associated with directing and managing all R&D functions with limited resources, while raising capital, working and meeting with investors and strategsing for appropriate exits. 

  2. To create a network of CMOs from small to mid size life science companies to share ideas, solutions and support.

Dr Steven Zelenkofske, CMO & SVP Clinical and Medical Affairs, Regado Biosciences and advisor to the program remarked, “I am excited about this conference and think it is very much needed.”
