The Westchester Biotech Project is an initiative to bring together researchers, engineers, and data scientists with connections to the region of Westchester County, NY. Activities include breakfast meetings, roundtables, webinars, and the Innovation in Research Symposium. 

We invite your participation as we address the vibrant opportunities and significant challenges for life science research, engineering, and data science. Overall, our activities are designed to stimulate knowledge sharing and collaboration across the many silos of biomedical research, device development, and commercialization.

At the Roundtable on Westchester Biotech Cluster Development, we will share our vision and ask for your viewpoint. Already we have interviewed a number of stakeholders across the region. At this by-invitation meeting we will share insights collected and ask for your perspectives.
