The weather is warming up just in time for a little disruption in New York biotech.

Come join us and celebrate the respite from the deep freeze: our latest event, “New York’s Life Science Disruptors,” will kick off Thursday afternoon at 5 pm at the Alexandria Center for Life Science in East Manhattan. We’ve brought together a great lineup some of New York’s most influential biotech leaders for some candid, interactive talks you’ll be able to take part in.

Tickets are going fast, but you’ve still got a few days to register here. Some of the names you’ll see:

—George Yancopoulos, one of the co-founders of Regeneron Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: REGN).

—Sam Waksal, the former CEO of ImClone Systems and an executive at New York’s Kadmon.

—New York Genome Center president and CEO Robert Darnell.

—Two of the key folks—Thong Le and Misti Ushio—that have brought Seattle’s biotech startup machine, Accelerator Corp., to the Big Apple.

—Acorda Therapeutics CEO Ron Cohen and CNBC biotech reporter Meg Tirrell, who will each moderate some of our chats.

Catch you all on Thursday in Manhattan.
