This premier full-day gathering welcomes life sciences leaders and trailblazers from academia, research, health institutions, government, and industry to engage in insightful discussions on the ever-evolving trends, developments, and policies shaping British Columbia’s thriving sector. 

BC’s world-class scientific research drives health innovation and catalyzes provincial economic growth, enhancing the well-being of British Columbians. Our sector leaders are collaborating to secure a thriving and sustainable future for all through globally sought-after health solutions, including innovations at the intersection between human health and climate change. 

This year’s programming focuses on the theme “Powering Life Sciences Innovation and Sustainable Economic Growth.” Stakeholders across the sector will engage in dynamic, multifaceted presentations and discussions to enhance collective knowledge that enables sector advancement.
