More women have climbed to the top of the corporate ladder than ever before. This report recognizes 20 of them: women at the top of the life sciences field who lead the charge in everything from research to business development and regulatory effort, or have outright built and run their own companies.
We’re looking for women in biotech, pharma and medtech who stand out as leaders, innovators and mentors in organizations big and small.
Be sure to submit your nominations by 11:59 p.m. EDT Monday, Aug. 19, for consideration in this year’s list.
