Networking Opportunities

Life science organizations continue to rapidly adopt automation, robotics, and disruptive technologies to enable optimal scientific discovery and innovation across Early Discovery, R&D, Clinical, Quality, and Analytical Labs.

In this competitive, fast-paced, and resource-intensive environment, transitioning towards intelligent, interconnected lab ecosystems is critical. It allows organizations to create digitally optimized workflows, reduce costs, accelerate timelines, increase collaboration, and develop groundbreaking medicines and treatments.

Successfully making this strategic digital transformation requires a clear vision and cultural willingness to change, sufficient resources and solutions, and engaged partners to overcome integration, implementation, user adoption, data, and legacy systems challenges.

Join industry experts in Boston this May as they collaboratively share insights to optimize life science labs, workflows & workforces with disruptive technology.
