The Conference Forum’s 2nd Annual Chief Medical Officer Summit West for Emerging Life Science Companies is delighted to present a truly distinctive and interactive event for CMOs. We are grateful to Dr. Elizabeth Stoner, Managing Director, MPM Capital, for suggesting the idea, and to our CMO advisors for their insights on content and agenda development.

We are dedicated to accomplishing two goals:

1. To bring together CMO executives to address the unique challenges associated with directing and managing all R&D functions with limited resources, while raising capital, working and meeting with investors, and strategizing for appropriate exits.

2. To create a network of CMOs from small to midsize life science companies to share ideas, solutions and support.

We understand that the role of a Chief Medical Officer is dramatically different depending on the type of organization in which a CMO works. For a CMO in early, emerging and even midsize life science companies, the role can be an isolated one. In addition to the responsibility of driving clinical development and CRO management, CMOs also need to meet the needs of investors and help position for an appropriate exit. We are seeing many CMOs play an increasingly larger role in raising funding for their life science companies. All these challenges are addressed at the Summit.
