Bay Area Life Science Events and Jobs That Crossed My Desk

I’ve been out of touch with the biotech industry for more than 10 days and after reading my emails today, I realized that not much has changed in my absence. Meanwhile, the European political scene is rapidly changing with news about new leaders in France and Russia dominating CNN alongside continuing news about Syria and Greece.  I wanted to get off this list of events and the most recent job list so you wouldn’t think I’d dropped off the face of the earth completely.

I’ve listed highlights of this coming week’s below:

  • BioCentury TV Today, See new program Webcast Starting Sunday, May 6, 2012, Continuously available starting at 9:00 a.m. EDT; Topic: “Double Feature;” Speakers: Dr. Sandra Kweder, Deputy Director of FDA’s Office of New Drugs; Dr. Marcia Crosse, author of the Government Accountability Office (GAO) report on drug shortages; David Gaugh, Vice President of Regulatory Sciences at the Generic Pharmaceutical Association, whose members manufacture 88% of generics sold in the U.S.
