Women from W*I*T*H association met last Thursday in Paris for an exceptional annual event of inspiring discussions on innovation in healthcare.
Shefali Agarwal was one of the talented women leaders who shared her experience. Former Chief Medical and Development Officer at Epizyme, a biotech developing novel epigenetic therapies for cancer, she is currently CEO of Onxeo S.A., a Paris-based clinical-stage biotechnology company with offices in Boston, developing novel oncology drugs.
We had also the great honor to welcome a special guest, Lila Bouadma, and to give her the Award of the Year for her outstanding career. Lila Bouadma is Professor of Medicine at the University of Paris and specialist in medical resuscitation at Bichat Hospital. She discovered her vocation as a doctor at the age of 9, when she witnessed the meningitis of her brother. She spent her entire career at Greater Paris University Hospitals – AP-HP and treated the very first patients diagnosed with Covid in Europe. On March 10, 2020, Lila Bouadma was appointed to the scientific council in charge of advising the government on the management of the coronavirus epidemic.
