The “Leaders of Tomorrow Summit” was the Mid-Atlantic region’s first student-led, cross-functional and inter-generational leadership Summit featuring students, young biotech leaders, bio-pharmaceutical industries, government, and entrepreneurs. The event was part of the MD Regional Biotech Forum. Our mission was to bring “50 Leaders of Tomorrow” together with established leaders from different sectors to inspire innovation, develop leadership, grow our regional bioeconomy, and challenge each other through discussions and seminars. This one-day immersive meeting includeed interactive seminars, panel discussions, and an innovation challenge for the “50 Leaders of Tomorrow.” The Summit engaged and influenced our next generation of visionaries and ignite innovation in our future bioeconomy.
The next generation of bioleaders was competitively selected from the top universities and institutions in the Mid-Atlantic Region. These 50 young visionaries include graduate students, professional students, and postdoctoral fellows in life sciences, medicine, law, policy, healthcare, and business. The inspiring young leaders are committed to help shape the Mid-Atlantic’s bioeconomy with disruptive and innovative ideas for change.
