North Shore Technology Council First Friday Seminar

Pharmaceutical and biotech companies working with small molecules, as well as companies in other business sectors that create chemistry based-products, have increasingly relied on the services of Contract Chemistry Vendors for services ranging from early discovery work through product manufacturing. Often, the first place these companies seek such services is more than 10 time zones away. It is largely unrecognized by US companies, including those headquartered in Massachusetts, that there are vendors of a wide variety of chemistry services located here, offering high quality work at competitive prices, with all of the advantages that close proximity provides. Founders of three such companies, CreaGen Biosciences, Organix and PCI Synthesis will discuss the benefits of utilizing local resources and talent.
