After the acquisition by Novartis, she served as CEO of Genetic Therapy, which was then a wholly owned subsidiary of Novartis. Mrs. King also worked previously at ALZA Corporation in Palo Alto, California and at Bain and Company in Boston.

    DEN DC Networking Event

    The Dartmouth Entrepreneurial Network of DC (DEN DC) will hold a structured networking event to facilitate connections between members. 

    Plan to join us for a fun-filled evening, and come make some new connections!

    Remember Metcalfe's law (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metcalfe%27s_law): the value of a network is proportional to the square of the number of connected users of the system (n2).  Here's a great opportunity to increase the value of your network!
