What is NewBioCity?
We are local biotech. We are pushing biotechnology to encompass diverse applications that impact life daily: Think novel foods, advanced materials, more effective medicines, and efforts to bring the benefits of biotechnology to everyone.
Our goal is to develop an ecosystem for biotechnology that reflects the multifaceted nature of New York City, engaging all of its unique resources, networks, and diverse communities. We believe a diverse biotech ecosystem holds the potential to create immense value for the city’s economic future.
New York City has the unparalleled position of pairing world-class academic centers, leading institutions in the worlds of art, fashion, finance, food, media, philanthropy, and technology with a rich set of biotechnology companies both established and emerging. No other city offers the breadth and depth of diversity offered by New York City.
