#xxfactor2016



 

For the first time ever in Virginia, women of the bioscience community statewide will gather and lead this full day event focused on working together to build stronger and better research, companies, institutions, networks, teams and individuals. For men and women across the state and BioHealth Capital Region!

Speakers and panels will share strategies for successful collaborations in research and commercialization, leadership development in the ever changing workforce, building effective and efficient professional networks, identifying sources of funding and capital, and cutting edge research and commercialization. Breakouts, panel discussions, structured breaks and a capstone networking reception will provide generous opportunity to make new acquaintances, explore collaborations and renew existing ties.
