Please join us on October 5, 2010 for an exciting discussion.
How has increased globalization within the life sciences industry affected expectations for international experience? What are the risks and rewards of working internationally?

These questions and more will be addressed in the first of a series of events on global opportunities in the life sciences. This event will be held in conjunction with the Boston chapter’s annual business meeting.
