Join us for a public panel discussion about the need, and potential, for improved health and economic outcomes within an emerging local biomedical industry hub.

This free public event features leaders in biomedical research and enterprise, discussing the exciting potential for innovation and commercialisation both locally and internationally.

Keynote speaker Dr. Lynn Johnson Langer (Johns Hopkins University, USA) will present the Johns Hopkins experience: an eminent research institution embedded within the leading Maryland (USA) biotechnology cluster.
