“In this new era, the current one-size-fits-all approach to healthcare will give way to personalization. Healthcare providers will use a person’s genomic profile, along with information about his or her lifestyle and environment, to develop individualized strategies for preventing, detecting, and treating disease. Genomic information will also enable doctors to prescribe medications in safer and more effective ways, selecting for each patient the right drug at the right dose at the right time.”

RTP Hosts Industry Leaders, All With Beginnings in R&D
The common lesson from the evening: let your passions drive your career decisions. Five industry veterans with successful careers that began in R&D spoke at the RTP chapter’s “Path's to Success: Careers in R&D and Beyond” event May 29 at the North Carolina Biotechnology Center. With very complementary presentations, the speakers collectively urged attendees to never stop learning, networking or taking risks throughout their careers. More than 90 attended the event, which featured:
Betty Marrow-Taylor, MEd, Senior Operations Manager, Biogen Idec
Judy Liu, MPH, Director Strategic Planning & Marketing Operations, GSK
Marga Oortgiesen, PhD RAC CCRP, UCB
Myla Lai-Goldman, MD, CEO and President, GeneCentric Diagnostics Inc.
W. Murray Spruill, PhD, JD, Partner-in-Charge RTA Office, Co-leader of Intellectual Property Patent Group, Alston & Bird
The speakers emphasized the importance of self-awareness. "Each day you should think about what's next and what you can build upon," said Betty Marrow-Taylor. "You're always on a potential job interview".
“It's important to be a lifelong learner, and to be able to learn from everyone,” said Judy Liu.
Marga Oortgiesen agreed, and told the audience to take advantage of others' experience, get qualifications, be open-minded, take opportunities, and to follow your heart and passion.
Myla Lai-Goldman told inspiring stories about passion and taking risks, and how trivial actions can change an entire career path. W. Murray Spruill closed the event by really driving home the importance of networking, and surrounding oneself with good, talented people.
Most attendees took advantage of the valuable networking opportunity following the presentations.
WIB-Southern California Chapter Kick-off Event a Huge Success
Tuesday April 30, 2013 marked the day that the WIB- Southern California Chapter held their well-attended launch event at Janssen Labs in San Diego, CA. Dr. Gail Naughton charmed the audience with stories of her childhood that made one understand how she became the dynamic individual she is today. She shared experiences of challenges she’s faced as a woman entrepreneur and how she overcame them in this still male dominated environment. Her career has been an eclectic mix of scientific tenacity and business savvy all while balancing family life and motherhood. She closed her presentation by talking about the importance of finding and being good mentors, which couldn’t have touched upon the aim of Women In Bio more closely.
WIB-Atlanta’s Evening with Entrepreneurs at Emory
WIB-Atlanta led by Jamie Graham, hosted a discussion with two successful local entrepreneurs, Margot King and Jim Heitner on Emory University campus on March 26, 2013. Margot King has many achievements to her name, including revolutionizing the human capital industry with unique strategies for Recruitment Process Outsourcing; her success in entrepreneurship led to her receiving the NAWBO WE award in 2009. She also hosted the syndicated radio show “Job Talk” for three years. Jim Heitner is a technology transfer specialist that has worked at the interface between universities/small businesses and the market, providing the necessary expertise to help drive biologics under development into the industry. He recently received the Emerging Leader of the Year Award in 2011 from Georgia Bio for his work at Ripple Management Inc.
The speakers emphasized first finding a unique niche or unmet need in the market and working to fill that void. They described their own personal experiences in product/service conceptualization and the steps they took toward actualization. Members from the audience asked a diverse set of questions ranging from personnel hiring and management, pitching products to clients, and issues about time management. They both emphasized the difficulty with evaluating whether or not to incorporate people into their team but expressed the importance of letting people go. Small companies cannot afford to have unproductive individuals on the payroll. They gave many more important insights and anecdotes about their experiences. Many participants engaged the speakers after the panel discussion with their own personal questions. Heitner and King left the audience with a better understanding of business strategies and how to resolve issues relevant to start-up companies.

A big thank you to Cooley LLP Seattle for hosting us at their beautiful new office space.
YWIB-Seattle Metro’s Sold-Out Theatre Event at "Photograph 51", honoring the late Rosalind Franklin, Is a Huge Success
Tickets sold fast for "Photograph 51", a play honoring scientist Rosalind Franklin, whose contributions were crucial to the discovery of the double-helical structure of DNA. With a well-written script by
Anna Ziegler highlighting the gender politics Franklin faced in a male-dominated field, the stage was set for avid young women scientists to be inspired and enlightened.
YWIB-Seattle Metro committee members coordinated large posters and information pamphlets on other notable but oft-overlooked female scientists, and encouraged future WIB and YWIB members to think about the role of women in science. YWIB maintained an information booth throughout the event and worked hard to address all of the questions that the young people, their parents, and other patrons had regarding women and science careers, and YWIB and WIB, and how to get involved.

WIB-RTP’s Spring Networking Event A Hugh Success
WIB-RTP’s spring networking event on Thursday, March 7, 2013 was a huge success. Sixty eight exceptional women from different background, to include R&D, clinical research, pharmacy, regulatory affairs, sales, marketing, business development, accounting and human resources, gathered at Serena’s in Research Triangle Park, NC. The event started with WIB-RTP Chair, Susan Nichols welcoming everyone to the first event of the year. Diana Zeng, Programs Chair followed Susan and described an exciting roaster of educational, networking and fun events WIB has in store. Natalia Mitin introduced the sponsors, ImmunoReagents and WorldWide Life Sciences. The networking event was divided in two sessions. The first session involved a structured networking where there were discussions amongst attendees grouped in smaller groups. The open networking that followed was an exciting opportunity to follow up on the conversations that were originated in smaller groups, getting introduced to other people by your new acquaintances or just walk around and chat with other people eager to get to know each other. It was exciting to see the levels of engagement and a desire to help each other and to stay connected. The feedback from the attendees was overwhelmingly positive. Below are a couple of quotes:
“I liked the break-out sessions with the different numbers. The smaller sessions provided a more intimate forum for introductions”
“Thank you for your organization and recognizing the need for networking among women in the science fields”
WIB-RTP’s Y-WIB Holds Event at Biogen Idec
WIB-RTP hosted a Y-WIB event on Tuesday, February 26, 2013 at Biogen Idec. Once again, Biogen Idec graciously opened its doors to 21 curious middle school girls to host a fun and interesting Young Women In Bio (Y-WIB) event. In conjunction with WIB-RTP, Biogen Idec provided an afternoon of lab activities that mimic real world jobs and careers.
The young women heard from female scientists who work in various departments of Biogen Idec from Quality Control (QC) to Patient Services. They then learned what it means to have those jobs by shadowing the ladies on a tour of the facility. The new community lab was utilized for lab activities and discussions. The afternoon wrapped up with pizza and conversations between the young women and Biogen Idec employees.
Women In Bio is thrilled and grateful for the continued partnership with Biogen Idec to continue to expose young women to promising scientific careers with Y-WIB events.
WIB-San Francisco Bay Area Women Network Over Chocolate Deliciousness!
In an evening as interesting as it was tasty, 37 members of the WIB-San Francisco Bay Area heard from former Prion researcher, Sunita de Tourreil, about her career journey from “Mad Cows” to “Happy Chocolate.” Those in attendance networked with fellow WIB members and learned that the field of cacao and chocolate “covers everything from chemistry, politics, agriculture, biology, love, neuroreceptors, flavor, exploitation, vasodilation, addiction, and sustainability.” Sunita, owner and curator at The Chocolate Garage, discussed the emerging world of bean-to-batch chocolates and how chocolate production is affecting the health of communities around the world, and then led a blind tasting of some of the most delicious artisanal chocolate bars imaginable. We also learned how the varied flavors in different chocolates could pair with a surprising variety of wines and beers, including both white and rose sparkling wines, red wines, sauterne and Belgian beer. In addition, each attendee was invited to take a bar of our favorite chocolate of the evening home for further enjoyment. Definitely a fun evening as well as an educational one!

San Francisco Bay Area Holds East Bay Speed Networking Event
The San Francisco Bay Area Chapter hosted a regional speed networking event in the East Bay. The event attracted not only ~30 locals but a few “non-natives” from La Jolla, Cambridge, MA and Durham, NC! The partakers noshed and networked in double time at the DOE Joint Genome Institute in Walnut Creek. JGI not only served as a fantastic backdrop for building valuable connections, but the participants were treated to an education about the work performed at the lab. Did you know JGI scientists sequenced chromosomes 5, 16 and 19 as part of the greater human genome project and continue to perform next gen sequencing related to clean energy, environmental characterization and cleanup? Cindy Silva, mayor of Walnut Creek, also spoke to the group about the city’s history and prospect as a life sciences hub.
YWIB-ATL Holds Maiden Event
On January 26 2013, YWIB-ATL participated in an STEM Outreach event to girls in Factory Shoals Middle School, Douglasville GA. This event was sponsored by the Douglas-Carroll-Paulding Counties Alumnae Chapter, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and organized by Emory College Center for Science Education. YWIB-ATL chair Sylvia Yip and volunteer Katherine Bowden led the girls in the strawberry DNA extraction experiment while vice-chair Lisa Pavento served in the panel to discuss careers in STEM with the girls. The girls each happily received a YWIB bracelet.
WIB-Greater Montreal and the British Quebec Business Coalition debate with passion!
On a cold winter night, WIB-Greater Montreal and the British Quebec Business Coalition co-hosted an evening of fiery debate, collegial networking and raising awareness about two great organizations. Over beers and crisps (chips in “North American”!), Carmela DeLuca, John DiMaio and Catherine Argyriou debated for the affirmative, “This house believes that, everything considered, biotechnology research would be better conducted in Quebec than in the UK.” as Tracey Rowlands, Marilyn Krelenbaum and Paul Plestedargued against the motion. Both teams debated passionately, and in the end, after polling the audience, moderator John Lawson called it a draw! We thank the Burgundy Lion for providing a cosy venue for the event and thank all attendees for their good spirits, especially in light of those icy Arctic winds!
