New York is looking to emerge as a leading biotechnology hotspot and strengthen its life sciences ecosystem through LifeSci NYC. Led by the NYC Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC), this strategic plan offers ten key initiatives and public-private partnerships to connect research to industry, unlock space for companies to grow and employ New Yorkers, and build a pipeline for diverse life sciences talent. 

Join the AIANY Science and Research Facilities Committee for an informative discussion about LifeSci NYC's early accomplishments and how designers and developers can get involved in the initiative. Panelists will be representatives from NYCEDC, LifeSci's start-up and corporate partners, and the life sciences community.
