A new product launch, a clinical study, or regulatory submission are all examples of projects in life sciences.

In performing their jobs, PMs in the life sciences are taking on more cross-functional responsibilities. And while asked to wear many hats, they must still ensure the final product or program is delivered on time, within budget, and in compliance.

Our experienced panelists will share their knowledge and tips on how to drive and successfully complete projects in all phases of the life sciences industry.

Panelists - Coming Soon!

John Beaber, Ph.D., PMP-Project Manager, Research and Development

His diverse experiences in antibody discovery and development, cell therapies, small molecules and phage therapy have exposed him to a wide array of therapeutic modalities and developmental challenges. His recent work at Santen has added clinical development to his research experience

John's project management skills developed organically while serving the needs of his organization.
