There and Back Again: A Tale of Engineering, Biotech, and Entrepreneurship

October 18, 2018

In this conversation, I plan to share with you my career path, beginning with the decision to work in industry, culminating in becoming a CEO three times over!  My emphasis will be on describing the breadth of opportunities that exist for scientists and engineers in industry, with a focus on the biotechnology sector.  Very rarely does a career proceed in a straight line and my hope is that you embrace this and take calculated risks, as many fulfilled entrepreneurs like myself have.
