Event Details

Xconomy Xchange: Boston Life Sciences 2032

What will the Boston life sciences landscape look like two decades from today? Will this region remain the world's leader in university, hospital, and corporate research; drug and platform development; and startup activity? Even more, will area companies be shaping a new era in healthcare--and what new advances might make that possible? Four years after we first posed these sorts of questions at our inaugural Xconomy biotech evening, we're assembling another select group of life sciences leaders, innovators, and venture investors to help us lift our heads up from day-to-day challenges and look to the region’s future.
