Few Life Science Events But Lots of New Job Postings This Week

There are fewer events this week due to run up to holiday weekend but lots of new job listings. I’ve provided both the Jobs That Crossed My Desk and Audrey’s Picks for Life Science Events. Right click on highlighted titles to download pdf of listing.

But be prepared for many more meetings the week of July 12th. I was disappointed to see several meetings for same sector audience planned for the evening of July 12th—too bad they weren’t planned for alternative dates from those of regular meeting times of long-standing organizations.

  • BioCentury TV Today, Viewable after Sunday Morning, June 26, 2011; Topic: ”PDUFA’s Fifth Round: Were Patients Left Out? ”Speaker: Dr. Vicki Seyfert-Margolis, Senior Advisor on Innovation and Policy to Commissioner Hamburg; Patient and consumer group speakers: Dr. Diana Zuckerman, President, National Research Center for Women & Families; Diane Dorman, Vice President, Public Policy, National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD); Daniel Perry, President & CEO, Alliance for Aging Research; Amy Allina, Program and Policy Director, National Women’s Health Network
  • Bio2Device Group, Tuesday Morning, June 28, 2011; Topic: Discussion of “Hot Life Science Topics;” Discussion led by Harry Wachob, President of Bio2Device Group
  • RAPS, Wednesday Evening, June 29, 2011; Topic:“Risk Evaluation and Mitigation (REMS): Are We Truly Mitigating Risks to Patients?” Speaker: Sally Van Doren, PharmD, president and CEO, BioSoteria, Inc.

I’ll be attending the Bio2Device Group on Tuesday morning and looking forward to the discussion session. Looking forward to see you again soon.

See articles that Harry Wachob listed for background for discussion at Tuesday’s morning meeting of Bio2Device Group: the impact of being in job transition ( or ), or is a U.S. Biomedical‘Value-Driven Engineering’ Device Innovation Strategy necessary ( ), or What Silicon Valley Doesn’t
Understand About Medicine ( ) or Studies of FDA criticized as med-tech industry spin ( ) or are Patients and taxpayers bearing the cost of stent wars ( ) or finally some other topic you would like to discuss. Don’t forget to bring business cards to exchange during networking.

Have a great holiday celebration!
