2020 Annual Meeting

The NewYorkBIO Annual Meeting brings together nearly 300 life science professionals to discuss our diverse ecosystem, ever-increasing innovative partnerships and collaborations, and the latest in scientific breakthroughs.

COVID-19 Update

We have made the difficult decision to postpone the NewYorkBIO Annual Meeting until a later date. As many are aware, the coronavirus situation continues to evolve. Our best and most appropriate response is to postpone the meeting and schedule it at a later date once we have more information and understand the trajectory of the virus, as well as the corporate and government response in the near term.

A special thank you goes to our sponsors who have been steadfast in their support of NewYorkBIO. We also would like to thank our stellar set of speakers who were lined up, and believe they will continue to participate when the new date is settled, so please look for additional communication from us in the coming days.

Thank you for your commitment to NewYorkBIO, and we hope to see you soon.
