San Francisco, the birthplace of Biotech, is delighted to offer WIB's resources and activities to the dynamic and innovative Bay Area community. The region is home to the world's oldest and largest life sciences cluster employing 52,000 people in over 1,400 companies and major academic centers including UCSF, Stanford, UC Berkeley, and UC Santa Cruz.
The San Francisco Bay Area continues to foster biomedical innovation. Local companies have over 700 products in clinical trials and the region is home to centers of innovation such as the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine and several well-established incubators.
We are committed to promoting careers, leadership, and entrepreneurship for women in the life sciences industry. We are dedicated to providing education, mentoring, and professional development assistance to women and young women who are working in life sciences companies or in professional services firms that support the life sciences sector. We also provide programs to support young women and girls who are interested in careers in science.
