Our theme this year:

"The Life Sciences Center of the Universe - Making it Work for You".


Cambridge/Boston, with Kendall Square as its focus, is the world's leading life sciences research center.It's a Life Science Super-Cluster. A vast amount of basic research happens here (and nearby); ever-increasing numbers of large and small pharmaceutical and biotech companies are making it their home; and local venture capital is readily at hand to prime the start-up pumps.

That's the picture in large focus. But what do things look like at the micro-level? Suppose you're an academic researcher and you have an idea which, you think and hope, might lead to a new product. Is it a benefit or a liability to find yourself in a place where so much is happening and so many other people have good ideas? Is it good or bad to be a small fish in a large pool?
