We believe that organizations, universities and researchers should have the opportunity to work outside of labs and otherwise fractured silos, and engage in forums with a free flowing exchange of ideas.
What emerges from our organized “conversations” isn’t just a set of best practices or updates on the latest advances in the field. Our goals are more concrete. We aim to provide resources and opportunities that will drive growth and move ideas forward.
Expanding access and bringing together thought leaders across a diverse array of scientific disciplines in North Carolina can open the gateway to faster development and commercialization.
