Event Details

Responding to ongoing demand, we were able to increase capacity for this Forum and re-open registration. Thank you to our event host, Biogen Idec. There are a limited number of seats available. Registration will close 1 day before the Forum.

San Diego biotech has taken its share of lumps lately, but beyond the next quarter or next year, what kind of life sciences potential really exists here? What will the San Diego life sciences landscape look like 20 years from now? Will the region have grown as a world leader in university and corporate research, venture financing, and entrepreneurial activity? Which particular fields of life sciences and healthcare will be the most vibrant? We will bring together a select group of innovators and visionaries in the heart of La Jolla for an intimate, interactive discussion of these and other key questions about the future of San Diego-area life sciences.
