Life Science Forum presenters will have the opportunity to give a pitch to 500+ venture capitalists, corporate innovation groups, angel networks, industry leaders, academics and service providers. In addition, all presenters will have an opportunity to participate in office hours on February 23, 2022.
New Date: February 24, 2022
While Rice Alliance and BioHouston were looking forward to seeing you in-person in November, with the continued impact of Covid-19, we have made the decision to postpone the Texas Life Science Forum from November 11, 2021 to Thursday, February 24, 2022.In consideration of Rice University's current limit on indoor gatherings, attendee safety and restrictions on travel, we believe a February event will provide a better experience for all, and one that ensures all 500+ attendees can safely gather, network and exchange ideas.
Join us on Thursday, February 24, 2022 to hear our keynote speaker, Dr. Stephen Hahn, former Commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, share his experiences and perspectives on leading during a pandemic, healthcare strategy and translational/clinical research. We are pleased to welcome back Dr. Hahn, a Rice Alumnus and former Chief Medical Executive at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, and have him provide our keynote address.
If you have already registered for the event, your ticket will automatically be transferred to the new date. If you are unable to join us on February 24th and would prefer a refund, we’re happy to make that happen. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
