The Westchester Biotech Project brings together researchers, engineers, and data scientists from across therapeutics, diagnostics, and devices. Based in the Westchester County, NY region, this is a borderless initiative with opportunities for local, national, and international collaboration.
We’re glad you found us. Please poke around this website and see what resonates for you. Or, just go ahead and introduce yourself in a note: firstname.lastname@example.org
As a leading initiative to generate benefit and growth for the Westchester County, NY Regional Cluster’s role on the international stage, we work to stimulate lively and productive partnerships. We focus upon the interests of researchers, engineers, and data scientists, and by extension the full matrix of services and support they require.
The results? Thus far our provocative programming, as we hoped, has triggered collaborative action- curriculum development for a certificate for young lab hires. Multiple companies and colleges/universities, as well as our Alliance Partners, are on it.
Our job is to keep this a pleasurable and productive process for you. Whatever your role in the continuum, we honor your time and hope to provide you with both active relationships and a useful environment for testing your ideas.
2017-2020 Current and Continuing Activities:
The Westchester Biotech Institute nurtures all of our convening activities- Symposia, Roundtables, Webinars, Workshops, Panels, and more.
Our Virtual Executive in Residence program provides free initial consultation on any relevant question, including scientific, regulatory, and business considerations.
Young Investigators is our integrated initiative to energetically invite involvement with diverse researchers from the Ph.D./Post Doc era onward. As a society we need these voices to take their proper leadership roles to break through legacy thinking that hampers progress.
Since 2017 we have been providing Technical Support to help our Partners develop great ideas. These range from collaborating on a webinar to research, document creation, and strategic guidance for the Rare Disease Hub, the Consortium on Translational Research In the Microbiome, and Westchester Biotech Project Europe.
Tackling Next: The dearth of accessible laboratory space for educators as well as employers is holding back a tidal wave of invention and growth. We have been told this over and over again from companies large and small, colleges and universities, and hospitals. Further, a need frequently stated is for a Graduation Space- an accelerator-like environment for growth stage life science companies. These two big ideas may be complementary or not. We’ll work with developers to host ongoing charrettes, both in person and online.
We Value and Support:
-Co-Action to Test Intriguing Questions
-Full Cluster Involvement to Leverage National/International Relationships
Prehistory: Major efforts over the years have created appetite for more engagement across the many silos of biomedical research, commercialization, and community benefit. We honor and appreciate the work of those who have made efforts in the past, and are proud that a key mover of past efforts is on our Executive Committee (Charlie)
History: We bring both youthful and mature capabilities developed over the complexities of the 20th-21st centuries.
Future: Build the world you want to live in. We listen blah blah blah
