Pamela Cox Presents Webinar “Life Science Start-Up Board IP & Licensing Considerations” for Women In Bio (WIB)

May 29, 2020

Chair of Marshall, Gerstein & Borun LLP's IP Transactions Practice, Pamela Cox will conduct a webinar for Women In Bio (WIB) Chicago Chapter’s recently formed 3.8 Initiative. Ms. Cox will focus on what life science start-up board members might want to consider regarding the start-up’s intellectual property assets, freedom to operate, and licensing and partnering opportunities.

Women In Bio is a national non-profit organization of professionals committed to fostering and encouraging entrepreneurship and career development of women active in the life sciences industry. Women In Bio’s 3.8 Initiative seeks to increase diversity in the healthcare community in the Chicagoland area and create a forum by which women can safely discuss and address the challenges they face in leadership positions. Marshall Gerstein is proud to support Women In Bio’s mission to help women achieve the highest levels of leadership, influence, and decision-making.
