Dear Life Science Executive,

New Paradigms to Fund Life Science Innovation is the leading event for CEOs, CMOs and investors of emerging life science companies looking for alternative sources of funding, non-traditional partnering strategies and unique deal structuring to advance R&D.

“Valerie Bowling and her team put on a terrific event, with one of the best lineups of speakers I’ve encountered in what still felt like an intimate setting at the Marine’s Memorial Club.” John Mulcahy, BiotechStart
