As part of The Business Journals’ Bizwomen feature, BioMed Realty’s Colleen O'Connor authored an article to share insights and advice from her successful career in life sciences real estate. In her current role – Senior Vice President, Leasing, East Coast and UK Markets – Colleen helps to foster the growth of vibrant innovation communities in the Greater Boston area and in the UK.
