More than 175 people are RSVPd for the TR 2nd Anniversary Party at 4:30 pm Thursday at Alnylam Pharmaceuticals in Kendall Square. This fun, free networking event is fast becoming a favorite tradition at Timmerman Report.
There’s still a little room left, but space is limited and registration will close by 3 pm ET Wednesday, Apr. 12. So if you plan to stop by, now’s the time to save a spot. No walk-ins will be allowed.
Also, be aware of some program updates:
The start time is moving back a half-hour to 4:30 pm. Special guests Phil Sharp and Abbie Celniker will be on hand to discuss impressions of the Hood biography and women’s leadership issues, respectively. Hear briefly from an MIT grad student and newly minted MIT PhD with startup ideas, and from TR contributing writer Leora Schiff on the value she sees in an independent, subscriber-supported biotech publication. There will also be an opportunity to purchase signed copies of “Hood”, and to get a FREE signed copy when purchasing a new group license to Timmerman Report.
Most of all, this is a great opportunity to get out and network with your biotech community peers and do it while supporting independent biotech media.
