Barbara Binzak Blumenfeld, a shareholder in the FDA & Biotechnology practice group in Washington, DC, was a panelist at a Women in Bio event on April 20 in San Diego.  The event, “Rare Disease Part 3:  Balancing Genetics and Ethics in the Management of Rare Diseases,” attracted dozens of individuals from the southern California life sciences community.  Barbara’s presentation, “Changes in Regulatory Approval Pathways for Rare Diseases:  A New Perspective,” provided the legal framework for traditional new drug approvals, and discussed how rare disease drug development presents challenges and opportunities when working within this framework and with FDA.

Women in Bio provides education, mentoring, networking, and leadership opportunities for professional women in life sciences fields.
