The Future of Science: How Women are Leading Medical Innovation

From 1990 to 2016, the share of women in the life sciences industry increased from 34 to 47 percent. Women also make up more than half of Ph.Ds. in biological and agricultural sciences. And many researchers are working to address health issues affecting women, ranging from endometriosis to heart conditions. Industry leaders, policymakers and academics have also shown how they’re dedicated to continuing to support innovation — and this includes fostering the next generation of scientists through STEM education programs.

The panelists will discuss what the new era of medicine means for women’s health, how the biopharmaceutical industry is empowering women and girls, and what they think the future of science will look like.
