As the most populous metropolitan region in the United States, it is no surprise that New York stands out in many regards. The state's universities excel as leaders in biotech and life science research, with millions of dollars granted to them each year from state institutions and both public and private donors. Here, scientists from around the world work together to find solutions to prominent research questions.
Biotechnology Calendar, Inc. hosts life science events at three of the top research institutions in New York each year. These BioResearch Product Faires™ bring together active, highly-funded scientists with companies able to supply these researchers with the best and newest lab tools available.
