Life Sciences Alumni Network Launch in Boston
June 12, 2014
6:00 pm-8:00 pm
Network with fellow life sciences alumni and industry contacts at the launch of the UMass Amherst Life Sciences Alumni Network.
Dr. Scott Garman (UMass associate professor of biochemistry & molecular biology and industry collaborator) and Dr. Timothy Edmonds (vice president of biologics, structural and functional research at Genzyme Corporation, a Sanofi Company) will lead a discussion on the ever increasing importance of academic-industry collaborations in bringing lifesaving medicines to patients.
All UMass system alumni and friends with an interest in life sciences are invited to network with business executives, academics, researchers and scientists from pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, as well as other industries with ties to the life sciences, such as the legal, finance and/or investment sectors. This event is generously sponsored by international law firm Edwards Wildman.
