MILWAUKEE, Sept. 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Dohmen Company CEO Cynthia LaConte will participate in a CEO panel at the 2015 BioScience Summit presented by BioForward, to be held Wednesday, September 16 at Monona Terrace in Madison. The BioScience Summit sessions will highlight trends and growth opportunities across Wisconsin's diverse bioscience industry. LaConte will join other biotech leaders for "Wisconsin CEOs Unplugged," to explore innovation and collaboration among members of Wisconsin's bioscience community.
"I'm excited to have the opportunity to interact with a great group of CEOs within Wisconsin's bioscience community," she said. "With nearly $30 billion in economic output, this industry is an incredibly important contributor to the state, but a lot of people don't know it exists. BioForward's BioScience Summit not only provides a forum to share insights, successes and collaboration opportunities, but it also raises much needed awareness of how this sector creates desirable jobs and improves the quality of human lives."
LaConte, a BioForward board member since 2014, is a passionate advocate for the value that an expanding life science industry can bring to the state of Wisconsin. In her role as CEO of the Dohmen Company, LaConte led Dohmen's recent transformation to a life science services company bringing the industry's broadest array of commercialization services to biotech, pharmaceutical and medical device companies.
BioForward is a member-driven association and nonprofit corporation with the vision to improve lives around the world by supporting life science innovation in Wisconsin. This year's Bioscience Summit theme is "Energy. Impact. Inspiration."
