WIB-RTP – Women in Clinical Research & Regulatory Affairs: Discussion about Career Paths & Successes

Join the WIB-RTP chapter for an informative evening on careers in clinical research and regulatory affairs. There is a fantastic panel of women with careers in these fields ready to answer questions about their work, the training and experience that helped them land a job, and how their career path led them to where they are.

At this event, the audience is encouraged to ask questions and interact with panelists. The event will wrap up with an open networking session. Companies that do clinical research and regulatory affairs have a strong presence in the RTP area, so if you’re considering a career in these fields, this is not an event you’ll want to miss!
