A Note from NewYorkBIO's CEO
Jennifer Hawks Bland

I hope you plan to join us next week for our NewYorkBIO Annual Meeting. This meeting is a highlight of the NewYorkBIO calendar and this year is no exception, though we'll be gathering virtually instead of in person.

This year challenged the entire world, and we have witnessed life sciences rise to the occasion by quickly developing vaccines and therapeutics while maintaining the highest standards of scientific integrity. I am very proud of the work that our companies are doing every day to advance treatments and cures for the most pressing problems of our time.

Next week at our meeting we will be talking about some of these important issues and how the policy decisions made in Washington and state capitols impact the patients who rely on our cures and treatments. We hope you will join us for two mornings of discussion that is timely and engaging. Each afternoon, we'll host virtual receptions that give you the opportunity to network and connect with colleagues. If you haven't registered yet, there is still time.
I hope to see you next week!
