Evan Jones, president and CEO of Digene, speaks with students after the lecture.

On November 16, Digene President and CEO Evan Jones delivered the first Whiting-Turner Business and Entrepreneurial Lecture of the 2006-07 school year titled, "Building a Winner in Diagnostics: Lessons from the Edge."

His lecture covered the crucial importance of intellectual property rights (and litigation to protect them); the necessity of picking the right people for a new company, including team players and individualists; and the immense potential of "personalized medicine" to tailor therapies to the specific types of pathologies a patient exhibits.

The next Whiting-Turner lecture will be held on December 7, featuring speaker Kathy Hill, senior vice president and general manager of Ethernet and wireless technology at Cisco Systems. The title of her lecture will be "Continuous Innovation."
