Welcomes New Executive Director Lynda Gayden

President Caroline Kane, Ph.D. and the Board of Directors of Biotech Partners have appointed Lynda Gayden as the new Executive Director.

“Lynda brings a wealth of nonprofit experience and knowledge to Biotech Partners,” says Caroline Kane, Board President.

Most recently, Lynda served as Executive Director of Contra Costa Regional Health Foundation where she was instrumental in stabilizing the organization and launching a variety of community programs and initiatives focused on caring for and improving the health of all people in Contra Costa with special attention to those who are most vulnerable. Her other experiences include Executive Director of the Child Abuse Prevention Center (CAPC) in San Jose, and positions with the Volunteer Center of San Francisco, the National League of Cities (where she was instrumental in securing an unprecedented $3.7 billion from Congress in a supplemental spending bill that included $822 million for grant programs to fight illicit drug abuse) and as a teacher in San Jose’s Franklin McKinley Unified School District.

A Bay Area native, Lynda earned her B.A. in Liberal Studies from California State University, Hayward (now East Bay). She currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Kian Jordan Rose Foundation

“Her success in strengthening programming, cultivating and maintaining partnerships, and expanding operations is an ideal fit for Biotech Partners,” Kane noted.

“I am delighted to join Biotech Partners,” says Lynda. “This organization has a solid track record of success and plays a pivotal role for our young people to access a career path in the Bay Area’s growing biotech industry."
