Honoree Panel Discussion
Following the Awards Program, we will be holding an honoree panel discussion which will be moderated by BIO's new President and CEO, Dr. Michelle McMurry-Heath.
Given recent events, and more especially our awardees’ experience and interests, the discussion will focus on the impact that innovations have on health equity. Join us after the program for this panel discussion that you won't want to miss!
MICHELLE MCMURRY-HEATH, MD, PhD
President and Chief Executive Officer,
Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO)
Dr. McMurry-Heath has dedicated her career to broadening access to scientific progress so more patients from diverse backgrounds can benefit from the cutting-edge innovation that we are celebrating here today. Driven by her own past family experiences navigating clinical trials and funding uncertainties within the rare disease community, McMurry-Heath calls “the distribution of scientific progress the social justice issue of our age.”
