As a board member, Poulsen frequently provides CBLS with input about issues and opportunities relating to the life sciences industry. She has been a guest speaker for several classes of MBA and undergraduate students at the Kelley School of Business, where she has addressed topics including FDA regulations and compliance issues; challenges facing pharmaceutical, biotech, and devices companies; and topics related to entrepreneurial success.
