The CABS Science Technology Committee fosters scientific exchanges in the life science
industry. Each year, the committee organizes a series of seminars to discuss the current
trends and cutting edge technologies in life sciences, often focusing on a specific approach
or technology throughout the year. Members of CABS not only benefit through the seminars
but also have the opportunity to interact directly with the speakers who are usually veterans,
well-known scholars, or entrepreneurs. In addition, the seminar series also provide members
the opportunity to connect with other professionals with diverse areas of specialization,
which could lead to unexpected insights.

International Collaboration

The CABS International Collaboration Committee (ICC) strives to promote international collaborations with various life sciences organizations and serves as a bridge that connects our members to life sciences communities in the Pacific Rim countries. This year we arranged our annual CABS entrepreneur delegation trip to China and hosted multiple Bay Area events for life sciences organizations from the Pacific Rim countries to facilitate networking and partnership opportunities with CABS members.

Our mission:

  • To serve the business and career development needs of our members and the San Francisco Bay Area life sciences community

2015 Career Advisory Network (CAN) Program Kickoff March 22, 2015, Foster City, CA

Due to popular demand, BCD launched the CAN program for the 5th consecutive year. CAN is a personalized career advisory platform designed to provide one-on-one interaction between a designated mentor and mentee. Since the inauguration of CAN in 2010, the program has been very successful and we have a growing number of CAN participants. This year, we have a total of 37 mentors from a broad range of functional areas in life sciences committed to serve our program. The CAN kickoff meeting held on 22 March 2015 was a great success with over 70 mentors and prospective mentees participating in this event. Details on the CAN schedule for this year are posted on the CABS website (www.cabsweb.org).
