Life Sciences Forum (January 2020)

Life Sciences Forum 2020: Focus on Parkinson’s Disease
At the Crossroads of Research, Healthcare and Business

Join us for our Life Sciences Forum, which has become an annual favorite for the local life sciences business community. This year’s Forum will feature an august panel of speakers including Philadelphia researchers and clinicians, an Irish start-up company focused on PD, and a senior representative from the well known Michael J. Fox Foundation, for an interactive discussion on the strides being made in the research and treatment of Parkinson’s Disease.

Sure to be an informative and lively event where audience questions are encouraged! With its unique combination of personal experience, science and hope, the conversations that begin during the Forum panel discussion go on long after it ends – so bring a few colleagues and join us for the cocktail reception afterwards. We look forward to welcoming special guest Consul General of Ireland Ciarán Madden to Philadelphia for this special event.
