The critical blend of science and finance for bioscience businesses

Leaders in the life sciences and bioscience sectors share insights



At a recent CBI Finance and Accounting for Bioscience Companies conference, RSM hosted a roundtable panel discussion on the role of the finance leader in scaling bioscience businesses. Panelists from the industry shared best practices and thoughts on:

  • How to stay on top of the latest financial and science insights
  • The importance of telling the company’s story in terms of investors, stakeholders and potential business partners
  • The challenges and opportunities when managing third-party providers

Stressing the importance of making sure both science and finance functions are working in tandem, one panelist indicated, “If we’re going to develop therapeutic solutions that improve the quality of life and health of people, we’ve got to be financially and operationally healthy as well.”

The panel was facilitated by RSM’s John Lanza, national life sciences practice leader, and Nancy Aubrey, a partner in RSM’s risk advisory services.
