Notes from BIO 2009: Women in Biotech: An Interview With Lynn Langer and Ronnie Melton

If you haven't heard of the Women in Bio (WIB) organization, it is a great resource to check out as a woman in the life science industry. Founded by four women in 2001, Women in Bio is an organization of professionals committed to fostering and encouraging entrepreneurship and career development of women active in the life science industry. The organization includes women executives, entrepreneurs, scientists, investors and students.

Women in Bio offers business educational programs and workshops, networking events and opportunities, professional development seminars to help women advance their careers and information and programs on science entrepreneurship for young women in middle and high school.

"Our aim is to give women that final step of empowerment they may need in an industry normally dominated by men and to help them connect with other professional women in the life sciences," WIB president elect, Lynn Johnson Langer said.
