Triangle Biotech Tuesday

Triangle Biotech Tuesday (or TBT) is a monthly networking event started in May 2012 to connect scientific professionals, facilitate collaborations, and foster communications throughout RTP and the greater Research Triangle area. Our monthly events bring in members of many companies, at different stages of life and career, for professional development and support. It allows members to reach across industries, explore job opportunities, and increase their impact in the local biotech community. 

TBT aims for continuous growth through the participation of major pharmaceutical, biotech, government, and academic institutions within and around RTP. It is also a registered non-profit in the state of North Carolina.

This exchange group is open to the public. Attendees include but are not limited to, members of the life sciences industry in RTP, allied industry partners, and students and faculty members at local universities. We count among our 1,800 members research scientists, sales and administrative personnel, teachers, writers, IP attorneys, graphic designers, real estate professionals, and more.
