You just keep doing what you’re doing because it is making all the difference educating everyone through all of the extraordinary changes in science and innovative leadership in science. I am very glad I could attend and I would love to continue our collaborations in the future.

What is the Westchester Biotech Project?

We’re glad you found us! The Westchester Biotech Project brings together researchers, engineers, and data scientists from across therapeutics, diagnostics, and devices. Based in Westchester County, NY, this is a borderless initiative with opportunities for local, national, and international collaboration. 

Since the Spring of 2017, we have hosted more than 30 gatherings with regional and international thought leaders. They have been joined by institutions, companies, nonprofits, professionals, and government - all striving to listen and collaborate. Multiple initiatives have emerged from this process, including the Westchester Certificate, The Consortium on Translational Research in the Microbiome, the Clinical Research Resource Report, and more!

Reach out to get involved!

As we deepen our mutual understandings, we are better able to align our interests and resources to impact a promising future for patients, physicians, entrepreneurs, and the economic lifeblood of the region. By stimulating interactions that can lead to fresh partnerships and collaborations, we enhance awareness, knowledge sharing, and broad benefit for this lively community.

Who's Involved? We work closely with the Westchester County Association and additional Community Partners such as Fordham UniversityMeridian Risk Management, Bleakley Platt Schmidt, and Skanska US. In addition, our Advisory Boards bring perspectives from regional, national, and international universities, companies, and institutes.

Why Now? In light of major investments such as the North60 initiative, poised to stimulate the economic vitality of the region's pharma/healthcare resources, now is the moment to bring active partners together and build ongoing programs to strengthen the researcher community driving innovation and growth. The Westchester Biotech Project provides support to this effort by inviting a broad spectrum of partners, and providing our services for organizing meetings, symposia, and web-based programs while acting as a catalyst for Community Development.
