Roundtable: Government Relations

Co-Chairs:
Lisa Wickens-Alteri, President - Capital Health Consulting
Andrew Zebrak, Executive Director, Public Policy, Therapeutic Areas, and Advocacy - Boehringer Ingelheim

Since the establishment of the New York State Life Sciences Initiative, in 2016, science and technology has found new life in New York. Over 47 companies have launched in New York State over the last three decades, placing NY in the #2 spot in the nation for funding biotech and life science research and development. Even with the positive influx of investment and the establishment of science and technology as a public authority in New York, the industry is still confronted by governmental barriers and bureaucratic policy.

and Health Information Management Entrepreneurs

Co-Chairs:
Scott D. Locke, Esq., Partner & Chair, Intellectual Property Department - Dorf & Nelson
Christopher C. Palermo, Esq., Senior Counsel, Harris Beach

As a researcher, engineer, or data scientist entering the entrepreneurial world, it pays to understand the steps needed to protect your discovery or innovation. If gone about the wrong way, researchers will be unable to realize the value of the inventions into which they poured their energy, and unable to attract the funding that they need to bring their discovery to market.

Part of our Mission is to enhance and support the careers of working scientists, engineers, and data scientists. We don't do anything like placements. However, we offer programs to address "what they don't teach you in school".

In turn, we hope that you will help us identify emerging breakthroughs, provide insight, and generate fresh ideas for our programs and enhancement projects. We work with each individual to bring you into the activities that are most intriguing for you. 

Interested? Please send a note to info@westchesterbiotechproject.org and we’ll get started.
