Virtual ‘Women in STEM’ event is Aug. 11


Lisa Bilek, Ph.D. (right), is seen here during a careers seminar that UNeMed hosted during Innovation Week in 2015. Seated next to her is co-panelist and fellow UNMC alum Tyler Martin, Ph.D.

Bio Nebraska will host a free virtual presentation next month, “Nebraska women in STEM: Finding what you need to succeed (or creating it if it doesn’t exist).”

The event is planned for Tuesday, Aug. 11, at 10:30-11:30 a.m.

Lisa Bilek, Ph.D., will tell the story of how she built and developed a stable career in science, and how that journey led her to create LOLA. LOLA is a non-profit that connects and supports women with shared experiences in their professional lives.

Learn more about the free presentation, including how to register, on the Bio Nebraska website:

Bilek received her doctorate in neuroscience from the University of Nebraska Medical Center in 2013. Since then, she has worked in medical affairs for biotech and pharmaceutical companies, accepting a position with Sanofi Genzyme’s multiple sclerosis team in 2015. She also sits on the UNMC Graduate Studies Alumni Advisory Board.
