Mayor Michael Bloomberg and state legislators around the New York City area have anointed life sciences as a key growth industry for the future. But what kind of potential really exists to recruit biotech and pharma entrepreneurs to NYC and surrounding regions—and to keep them here? What will the New York life sciences landscape look like 20 years from now? Will the city have grown as a world leader in university and corporate research, venture financing, and biotech entrepreneurial activity? Which particular fields of life sciences and healthcare will be the most vibrant? We will gather a select group of innovators and visionaries at the Alexandria Center for Life Science for an intimate, interactive discussion of these and other key questions about the future of this industry in the greater NYC region.
