PHL Life Sciences is the first and only division of a CVB in the country focused on life sciences meetings and works to provide access to Philadelphia’s substantial healthcare and higher education community of academics, medical and nursing leaders, healthcare experts, biotechnology, pharmaceutical and venture capital contacts.
PHL Life Sciences is comprised of the region’s life sciences leaders representing academic medical centers, hospitals, biotechnology and pharmaceutical firms, venture capitalists and the business community throughout the greater Philadelphia region.
Comprised of more than 50 local industry leaders, advocates and innovators, the PHL Life Sciences advisory board is co-chaired by Dr. Darryl Williams, Senior Vice President of Education at the Franklin Institute, and Dr. Heather Steinman, Vice President for Business Development and Executive Director of Technology Transfer at The Wistar Institute.
Additionally, the PHL Life Sciences nursing leadership committee consists of 30 leaders in Philadelphia’s dynamic nursing community. In partnership with the PHL Life Sciences team, these advisory committees play a key role in connecting association leadership and planners with the network and tools for a successful meeting in Philadelphia.
COVID-19 has left destinations with unprecedented challenges, including the need to take necessary steps in ensuring that health, safety and infection prevention protocols are in place for all visitors.
This panel of medical experts advise the PHLCVB and its customers on the region’s medical assets that benefit and enhance conventions and meetings held in Philadelphia. We continue to partner with this advisory board to guide the PHLCVB amid this new and evolving landscape which is forever changed because of COVID-19.
