Chief Medical Officer East

Battery Wharf Hotel, Boston Common, Boston MA


Steven Zelenkofske and Jim Roach address the role of the CMO

The Conference Forum’s 3rd Annual Chief Medical Officer Summit 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 advisers 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 mid-size life science companies to share ideas, solutions and support.

The Role of a CMO in Emerging Life Science Companies
The role of a Chief Medical Officer is one that means many things to many people, and indeed is radically different depending on the type of organization in which a CMO works. For CMOs in early, emerging and even mid-size life science companies, the role can be an isolated one, but with all the responsibility for driving the clinical development and CRO management while meeting the needs of investors and positioning for an appropriate exit. Chief Medical Officers are playing an increasingly larger role in raising funding for their life science companies.

Who Should Attend

The conference is designed specifically for CMOs, but certainly Heads of R&D, Clinical Operations/Development/Outsourcing, and Vice Presidents of Medical Affairs would also greatly benefit from attending the program. Clinical service providers and investors are encouraged to attend as conversations with CMOs are very much welcomed.
