January 21, 2015
Foley & Lardner
Location: LabCentral Lobby
Foley & Lardner LLP and LabCentral invite you to attend the first event in the 2015 Life Science Wizards Speaker Series at LabCentral. This is a unique opportunity to network with colleagues, while getting a chance to hear from some of the most distinguished trailblazers in the Boston life sciences community.
Tonight's speaker is Dr. Susan Windham-Bannister, president and CEO of the Massachusetts Life Science Center (MLSC), a state-funded investment organization charged with administering the 10-year, $1 billion life sciences initiative that was proposed by Governor Deval Patrick in 2007 and enacted by the Massachusetts legislature in June 2008. We will discuss Dr. Windham-Bannister’s initiatives for promoting life sciences innovation, research, development, and commercialization.
Prior to joining the MLSC, Dr. Windham-Bannister co-founded Abt Bio-Pharma Solutions (ABS), a boutique consulting firm serving life sciences companies. Within ABS, Dr. Windham-Bannister managed the Commercial Strategy Group.
Dr. Windham-Bannister’s achievements include co-authoring two books: Competitive Strategy for Health Care Organizations and Medicaid and Other Experiments in State Health Policy. She also has written numerous articles on competition in today’s health care market.
