Five years ago, in light of a major initiative by city, university, and industry leaders to spur growth in the local biotech cluster, Xconomy held an event called New York Life Sciences 2031. The idea was to look out 20 years to envision the changes the new efforts might bring. Few imagined things would have evolved so quickly. In the past five years, not only have big companies upped the ante in New York, the city has been teeming with an influx of startups, venture capital, and incubator spaces—not to mention key research initiatives such as the New York Genome Center and Tri-Institutional Therapeutics Discovery Institute.
The pace of change has been so rapid that Xconomy is inviting a new set of leaders to help gaze just five years into the future. What will the life sciences landscape look like in 2021? Will the city have grown even more as a world leader in research, venture financing, and biotech entrepreneurial activity? Which fields will be the most vibrant? Join Xconomy at the Alexandria Center for Life Science for an interactive discussion of these and other key questions.
