After 43 years, a 35,000 percent growth in membership, the addition of new industry sectors and a radically different training environment, the former Society of Pharmaceutical and Biotech Trainers (SPBT) announced on June 10, 2014 its new name - the Life Sciences Trainers & Educators Network, or LTEN (el-ten).
The next four decades brought considerable change. The association evolved from a small think tank of a handful of professionals into a strong membership-based society. In 2000, as a response to the biotech boom and the broadening range of responsibilities outside of sales training, the name was changed to the Society of Pharmaceutical & Biotech Trainers, or SPBT.
LTEN has always been led by leading training professionals in the life science industry. View our list of past presidents.
