oneweekbhcrOne week away from the 9th Annual BioHealth Capital Region Forum (, a cornerstone event for anyone involved in the biopharma sector. Scheduled for September 19th and 20th at the US Pharmacopeia in Rockville, Maryland, this year's forum promises to be an enriching experience for all attendees. Even better, thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, attendance is entirely free of cost!

A Gathering of Minds

The forum is a unique confluence of thought leaders, industry executives, academic pioneers, and government officials. This year, the keynote addresses promise to be particularly illuminating. Rachel King, the CEO of BIO, will speak on biotechnology's accomplishments and challenges in her talk titled "Biotechnology: What We've Accomplished and the Challenges Before Us." On the other end of the spectrum, Lance Liotta, Co-Director of the Center for Applied Proteomics and Molecular Medicine at George Mason University, will explore the cutting-edge intersection of AI and BioHealth in his keynote, "Hijacking Cellular Communications using AI Tools: A New Frontier in BioHealth."

Panels: The Heart of the Forum

The panel discussions at the forum are designed to tackle some of the most pressing issues and opportunities in the BioHealth Capital Region. "Resources to Prepare for a More Successful Journey Across the Valley of Death" will offer invaluable insights into navigating the often perilous path from research to commercialization. The panel on "Growing the Region's Bio Ecosystem" will discuss the role of Research Foundations like FNIH, HJF, and FESI in bolstering the BioHealth landscape.

Also, “Underscoring the patient perspective: How patients can help guide scientific Innovation” features an introduction from Horizon’s Senior Vice President of Clinical Development, Theresa Podrebarac, and is a can’t miss discussion.

Additional panels will cover topics such as BioHealth Embassy Engagement in the BHCR, the state of BioManufacturing and Supply in the Capital Region, and the critical role of the patient perspective in guiding scientific innovation.

A Special Event: The 8th Annual Crab Trap Competition
