The Healthcare Technology Report is pleased to announce The Top 25 Women Leaders in Biotechnology of 2022

The Healthcare Technology Report is pleased to announce The Top 25 Women Leaders in Biotechnology of 2022. The COVID-19 pandemic saw an explosion in biotech funding in 2020 and 2021. And while that funding has declined somewhat this year, the added attention the industry has received means funding will likely never return to its previous levels. This additional funding and attention has been crucial in the development of countless revolutionary biotechnologies, but none of those technologies would be possible without superb leadership within the companies that created them. The accomplished women selected for this year's awards represent a diverse range of leadership positions, specialties, and backgrounds, from entrepreneurs building new companies, to scientists discovering innovative ways to treat deadly diseases, to executives enabling their companies to navigate an increasingly competitive industry.

Some of the elite leaders on this year’s list include Ginger Zhou, VP and GM of Genomic Services and Solutions for Azenta Life Sciences, who holds primary responsibility for leading global Genomics business growth, operations, and development of related products and solutions, and oversees more than 1,500 employees and 13 labs in five countries. Meanwhile, Lindsay Jaramillo Steckel, VP of Enterprise Program Management at Tolmar, has been integral in the rapid growth of the company and a catalyst for the extensive and diversified pipeline in multiple therapeutic areas, establishing a team of project and program managers who are responsible for Tolmar’s commercial, product development, operations, and strategic projects. And Sharon Benzeno, Chief Commercial Officer of Immune Medicine at Adaptive Biotechnologies, has led the company’s Drug Discovery group and steered its industry partnerships, including with Genentech, focusing on advancing potential life-saving T-cell based cancer therapies.

The exceptional women on this year’s list were selected based on our comprehensive analysis of hundreds of nominations, taking into consideration professional milestones achieved, demonstrated domain expertise, and longevity in the biotech field. Feedback from colleagues, industry influence, and previous honors and recognition received were also assessed, along with numerous other metrics, to arrive at our final list. Please join us in celebrating The Top 25 Women Leaders in Biotechnology of 2022.
