Throughout the last two decades, BioCrossroads has encouraged growth within Indiana’s life sciences industry through both direct and indirect activities that have advanced Indiana’s standing as a national life sciences leader. There is a lot to reflect on as an organization and as an industry, and a bright future to look forward to thanks to the dedication, connections and collaboration of this unique sector.

During the conference portion of the event, we will hear from many of the companies and individuals who have been impacted by BioCrossroads and life sciences community, including Cook Medical, SonarMed, Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute, Indy Hub, Indiana Health Information Exchange and more. Then, we will recognize an outstanding member of our community through the Watanabe Life Sciences Champion of the Year award, and enjoy a toast to our accomplishments with a celebration reception.
