New York City has the highest density of leading healthcare, research and academic institutions of anywhere on the planet, and produces a massive amount of exceptional talent from these world-renowned institutions. There is tremendous momentum driving both academia and industry to help turn the Tri-State area into one of the world's leading hubs for the life sciences. A critical part of this is maximizing the talent produced, and developing it to make a significant impact.

GRO-Biotech (Graduate Research Organizations for Biotechnology) has quickly become a pivotal player in this endeavor by helping students understand the career opportunities available to them, how to prepare for those careers, and what they can expect from those careers. We also play an active role in connecting leaders in industry with the innovators of tomorrow in academia, effectively spanning the gap between them.

Join GRO for three days of exciting panel conversations (each day covering different topic), insightful keynotes, and finishing the week with a virtual happy hour dedicated to networking with peers and industry leaders who are creating the next breakthroughs in science and technology. We're carefully crafting an incredible lineup of speakers to discuss industry trends, career opportunities, and insight into the day-to-day of careers in sectors ranging from consulting, to synthetic biology, to science communication and beyond.
