Roundtable: Educators and Employers

We bring together curriculum influencers with regional employers to explore key skills and capabilities desired in the next generation of life science drug development, and diagnostics/device inventors. In light of major development across the biocluster, it's an important time to build upon the region's collaborative environment. The Roundtable  informs initiatives to raise opportunity density for early career researchers, engineers, and data scientists.

Roundtable: Building the Biotech Cluster


Diverse players are necessary to drive opportunity density in the region -- developers, builders, real estate experts, tax and legal professionals, consultants, investors and more. This group is open to researchers who provide the excitement to inspire growth.

To a company we have heard that hiring scientists is a challenge, and by listening to their concerns it is clear that issues range from housing to lab space to transportation, government incentives, etc.

The specific interests and concerns of investors in the life sciences -- including diagnostics, and devices -- reflect the complexity and impact of biomedical research itself. This by-invitation Forum is a platform for sharing perspectives, addressing challenges that may be in common but express themselves in unique ways, and helping inform our initiatives.

By gathering representatives from the academic, industry, government, hospital, and nonprofit sectors, the Roundtable for Researchers is unearthing existing studies in discovery and clinical trials. From our explorations it is clear that regional researchers are commonly partnering with national and international collaborators who may participate virtually.
