Xconomy Forum: Seattle Life Sciences 2029***SOLD OUT***

Seattle 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 in the Northwest? What will the Seattle 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 Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood for an intimate, interactive discussion of these and other key questions about the future of Seattle-area life sciences.
