HERstory: Honoring Outstanding Women in Biotech. The HERstory Gala is the premier event for our chapter and it’s supporters. This elegant event attracts men and women from industry, government, non-profits organizations, and academia from across the Capital Region Metro Area and provides unique opportunities to meet with some of the region’s most successful women.
