RI’s Life Sciences Hub Opens with Med Tech Showcase

GPCC attended the Life Sciences Technology Showcase, the inaugural event of RI’s Life Sciences Innovation Hub, where science, talent, & capital strategically came together to collaborate & accelerate innovation within the RI life sciences community. The Hub, located in the heart of Prov’s Knowledge district & housed in RI Center for Innovation & Entrepreneurship, was visited by dozens of scientists, investors & entrepreneurs from throughout NE at yesterday’s event.

The Showcase included an open studio walkabout, panel discussions, start-up pitches & poster session, providing attendees with the opportunity to experience the richness and breadth of the world-class life sciences research underway in RI.  The forum created the first opporunity for RI to align regional life sciences expertise, and stimulate networking within that community.  The ultimate goal is to establish RI as the epicenter of life sciences development (between Boston, New Haven and New York) in New England.
