Find Your Community

Exchange groups are communities of academic, government and other life sciences professionals who gather to discuss their science, network, find potential partners, and create new ideas.

Many groups organize around a specific field of life sciences. But we support other life sciences professionals who share common interests as well.

Exchange group events provide content-rich informational seminars from local and national experts, discussion groups, and focused networking on a broad range of topics related to life sciences research, business, and related issues.

Interested in attending an event? Become part of our vibrant exchange group community by subscribing to our email announcements through our Interest Form or look for a group in your region:

Create Your Own Group

Interested individuals or groups within the life sciences industry initiate Exchange Groups, which include participants drawn from universities, the business community, or other constituencies. Funding is available from NCBiotech for reimbursement of meeting expenses. The level of funding varies with the needs of the group. Groups are expected to seek other sources of support to add to the NCBiotech funds.
