Event description

Description

The speed of innovation in biotech is moving like never before, and the focus to move even faster, safely and accurately, is invigorating and wrought with challenges. The stakes are high. Biotech companies are not just producing treatments to improve quality of life but creating cures that save lives. The Triangle is a haven for biotech companies both established and emerging.

Join us for WRAL TechWire Live at LaunchBio's Larger Than Life Science as some of the Triangle’s power hitters step up to the plate to pitch North Carolina as a great place to grow a biotech company. We’ll explore the transformation in the industry and our region, plus what lies ahead as machine learning, AI and VR become more than gimmicks.
