Pacific Northwest Life Sciences Executive Forum

Recognizing the growing need for top-level executives to meet and network with their peers, and to discuss their business challenges, successes and opportunities.

Seattle is a hot-bed of non-profit scientific research, much of it intended to translate innovation to the developing world. Rightly so, initial focus has been placed on getting principal investigators and scientists together to allow for a more open exchange. However, successful research institutes are those that effectively manage the fine line between enabling science and impeding it – the latter may occur either due to cumbersome or insufficient infrastructure.

This forum is designed to bring together non-profit C-level professionals with a diversity of expertise to share best practices and to determine areas warranting additional inter-institutional or regional collaboration.

Organizing Committee:
Abhijit Banerjee, Ph.D., M.B.A., Director of Business Development, Oregon Health and Sciences University
Tammy Buist, Vice President, Chief Business Development Officer, CRAB
Frank X. Curci, Partner, Ater Wynne, CRAB Board of Directors
Diane Gary, Vice President, Operations, Sage Bionetworks
Curt Malloy, Chief Operating Officer, CRAB
Dana DeVange Panteleeff, Director of Finance and Administration, Department of Global Health, University of Washington

Meetings will be held quarterly and not less frequently than semi-annually.  The hosting of the meetings and selection of speaker/topic will rotate among the member institutions.
