Westchester Biotech Blueprint 2030

Since we launched, we have collaborated with hundreds of organizations, companies, academic institutions, hospitals, government bodies, early career scientists, and professionals to stimulate discussion and fresh partnerships.

The overriding take-away is that our community is eager to capture opportunities, identify gaps, and work together to nurture the relationships that will move us all toward a healthy, growing, biomedical sector.

And so, we are embarking on a series of Charrettes (starting June 215, 2019), Research, and Development to build long term vision and action.

Most work will flow through our Roundtable: Buiding the Biotech Cluster, co-chaired by Raj Ratan, Ph.D., Director of the Burke Neurological Institute, and Sarah Epifano of Skanska.

To be sure we are including all voices, each of our many Roundtables will be invited to participate, most particularly the Roundtable for Researchers and the Roundtable: Educators and Employers, co-chaired by Amy Allen of the Westchester County Association and Dr. Carla Romney, our Director, Education Strategy.

Wherever your interests take you across the many silos of biomedical progress, this is your opportunity to help drive the innovations, facilities, resources, and services that will move the needle on a vibrant future.

Why Us?

The Westchester Biotech Project was initiated through a collaboration between Michael Welling, father of an amazing son who required two stem cell transplants in 2007, and Joanne Gere, who has been working throughout her career to tempt scientists to communicate across disciplines.

Compelling activities have led to practical actions and initiatives. As our community grows, your voice can impact growth that impacts patients, providers, educators, companies, and your government.
