The Philadelphia life sciences region is strong and growing. Sometimes dubbed Cellicon Valley, it houses big names like GSK, J&J and BMS, while also having a top-tier university system, such as the University of Pennsylvania, Drexel University and Temple University. The region’s talent pool has been ranked by CBRE as one of the best in the country and real estate prices and cost of living are significant draws over some of the more established bioclusters.

There is growing excitement about the future of Philadelphia’s biopharma sector. Whether you’re a job seeker, investor, or stakeholder in the Philadelphia region’s biohub, some of these upcoming “can’t-miss” events are a great way to bolster your knowledge of the industry and meet others in the life sciences community.

Here’s a roundup of some of the upcoming Philadelphia life sciences events and seminars set for April through the end of June.
