Growing the Southeastern Biotech Industry: From Charlottesville to Atlanta and Beyond

Thanks to our sponsors, this event is now complimentary

In cities like Charlottesville, Atlanta, Raleigh, and other places across the southeast, the biotech industry has been a significant contributor to growth and innovation, attracting capital, talent, and jobs. This growth is bolstered by the existence of premier academic research institutions, coupled with a rising number of biotech startups and well-established companies, fostering an environment rich for innovation. Please join us for a panel discussion and networking reception, representing a range of academic, industry, and investor perspectives, facilitated by the UVA Club of Atlanta, GeorgiaBIO, and Greenberg Traurig, where we’ll explore the present landscape of the southeast biotech industry and its prospective growth opportunities.
