Bioscience firms continue to thrive and expand in Central Oregon – further diversifying the region’s economy.  Educational related investments like the newly minted Edward J. Ray Hall and the upcoming Innovation District at OSU Cascades, signal a new phase for Bend’s science-based infrastructure. What other factors will generate new bioscience activity in the area?  How can Bend leverage its strength to grow the life sciences sector in coming years?

Join us as Oregon Bio and Bend Chamber team up for our first joint in-person event since early 2019 as our panel of experts explores these themes during our program.  Before and after our speakers, we’ll have plenty of time for networking – plus bites and beverages.

About our venue: Recently completed OSU Cascades Edward J. Ray Hall is a $49 million investment designed to support the STEAM disciplines of science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics.  The 50,000 square foot building is climate controlled through sustainable geothermal energy and is the first in Central Oregon to be fully constructed using mass timber.
