We have 15 speakers contributing. In addition to our Queen’s University counterparts, President Dewan is part of the welcome and Bob Corona, CEO of Upstate University Hospital, and David R. Pichora, president and CEO of Kingston Health Services Center, are among the featured speakers. 

The conference is part of the Kingston-Syracuse Pathway, a cross-border economic partnership between business, government and academic institutions from both sides of the border. Of the four such partnerships, the Kingston-Syracuse Pathway is the only one focused on the health and life sciences sectors.

The previous event took place in Ontario, Canada and was well supported by their local faculty and business partners. We hope to do the same for our guests coming to Syracuse.

This year’s conference presents a chance to meet in person with innovative peers. Discussions include medical research, industry collaboration, regenerative medicine and bio-manufacturing.
