Women in Biotech at the Salk Institute #1 – Tina Nova

Heartily dismissing negative stereotypes of scientists, legendary biotech entrepreneur Tina Nova, co-founder of Genoptix, and Salk Institute professor Janelle Ayres rocked an auditorium full of high school girls with stories of how hard work and confidence led to their joyful lives and satisfying careers in science. Following these two keynotes, Ayres joined Salk senior scientist Carol Marchetto and Natalie Calatayud and Kaitlin Croyle of the San Diego Zoo Institute for Conservation Research as they each shared their own paths to success.
