Last Chance to Save on June 21’s ‘New York Biotech: Bringing Back the Expats’

Xconomy National — 

Summer is quickly approaching, and Xconomy has one last biotech event lined up to kick it off. On Thursday, June 21, we’re presenting “New York Biotech: Bringing Back the Expats.” Register today with our procrastinator’s special and save $75!

The New York life sciences sector faces myriad challenges catching up to places such as Boston and San Francisco. Lack of affordable real estate space and available early stage funding are some frequently cited concerns, but there is much promise as well (learn more in an analysis from experts in our event preview “NY ‘Expats’ Talk Big Apple’s Biotech Future”).

At this exclusive evening event at the Alexandria Center for Life Science, we’ll be asking some ex-New Yorkers about the state of the scene and what it would take for them to return to their roots and work in their hometown’s biotech industry. Learn more. Speakers include:

    • Steve Holtzman – President & CEO, Decibel Therapeutics
    • Jeremy Levin – CEO & Chairman of the Board, Ovid Therapeutic
    • Jenna Foger – Senior Vice President – Science & Technology, Alexandria Venture Investments
    • David Epstein – Executive Partner, Flagship Pioneering
