    Larger Than Life Science is a free monthly event series open to everyone interested in building a strong support network for North Carolina?s life science and healthcare innovators.

    This month's theme: Looking Back, Looking Ahead

    We pause at the threshold of a new decade -- the 2020s, believe it or not -- to look back at how far we?ve come in the last decade, both as individual scientist/entrepreneurs and as a community of large and small life sciences companies. But then we can?t help but look ahead! What?s the next chapter going to be like? What will we learn? What can we grow together?

    4:15-5:15 p.m. | Panel

    The Decade Just Past: We?ve come a long way, North Carolina!

    Fresh ideas and new investors flowed into the Research Triangle region during the 2010s and Downtown Durham blossomed spectacularly with new life sciences energy and employment. We even experienced a few stellar exits! A panel of leaders who had a pretty amazing decade share their experiences and lessons.

    5:30-6:30 p.m. | Panel

    The Decade Ahead: What?s coming in the Life Sciences?

    Predictions are always risky, but also essential to business growth and success. A panel of area leaders in promising technologies shares what they see ahead for their areas of science and where the unmet needs and opportunities may lie.
