This panel will examine both sides of the coin and explore what the future of women in life sciences will look like with four more years of the current administration vs. a new administration.

  • Gauging the current political landscape and its effect on the life sciences industry
  • Taking a look at leadership and policy changes that have occurred in the last four years under the current administration and their impact and consequences for the life sciences space
  • Assessing how current life sciences policies are currently affecting women
  • Projections on how potential changes in administration and government agency leadership (e.g. at the FDA, OIG, Attorney General’s Office) may affect policies impacting life sciences moving forward
