Now more than ever, the life sciences are key to improving lives. Cornell faculty and alumni are enhancing human health through research, policy, and innovation. Join us as our expert panel discusses a sector outlook and trends. You'll learn how cancer and immune system research inspires new prevention and treatment, how U.S. policy and programs keep our food supply safe and nutritious, and how life science entrepreneurs develop and commercialize their technologies.

After the panel discussion, join us for a life science networking group breakout session and connect and collaborate with other alumni!
