The Senior Fellow & Director of Life Sciences is responsible for carrying out research and developing academic material to advance CLI’s mission. This individual will play a key role in defining CLI’s strategy, development of CLI research agendas, and coordination with CLI Associate Scholars to complete determined agendas.
