Xconomy’s EXOME Presents: New York’s Life Science Disruptors

For so long, the life sciences scene in New York has been missing a key ingredient needed for any biotech hub to flourish–the full attention of biotech venture capitalists. That, however, is changing fast. Over the past year, New York’s radical biotech transformation has drawn some of the country’s best-known life science company creators into the big city with big dollars to spend. And they’ve started putting that money to work by forming some of the most high-profile startups the city has seen in some time.

Join Xconomy at the Alexandria Center for Life Science. We’re taking this important topic head on with a unique, interactive evening featuring a trio of candid stories and insights from some of the area’s top innovators, researchers, and venture backers committed to turning New York into the nation’s next great biotech cluster.
