PDA West Coast Chapter Mission
The PDA West Coast Chapter (PDA WCC) plays a vital role as the premier organization for the San Francisco Bay Area's biopharma industry professionals. The PDA WCC was founded 30 years ago with its mission of connecting people, science, and regulation. We strive to promote and enhance knowledge within the sciences and technologies, develop programs and other activities designed to meet local and/or global needs consistent with PDA's mission and objectives.
Please welcome the following new and returning officers:
President: Liraz Oechsli
President-elect: Vamshi Gangupomu
Secretary: Kate Nelson
Treasurer: Fabio De Martino
Members-at-Large: Parag Shah, Nick Kapp, Maria D'Aguilar, Lee Asplund, Sumaira Amir, Keau Wong, Lee Anderson, Tim Cser, and Caitlin Quigley.
This active group of volunteers will:
- Produce engaging chapter activities and networking events for you
- Promote the development of our members
- Present opportunities to share technical resources
- and generate opportunities to collaborate with regulatory agencies
WCC PDA is a 501(c)6 non-profit organization run by volunteers, and without sponsorship, we would not be able to provide valuable educational and social networking events to our membership. As PDA members, you can connect the chapter with companies that would like to become WCC PDA Sponsors, a unique opportunity for vendor/service companies to strengthen their brand image, increase their visibility, and gain access to leaders of the San Francisco Bay Life-Science Community.
