The 7th Massachusetts Life Sciences Innovation (MALSI) Day  is the biggest day for life sciences startups and innovation in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. This is a high-energy, hands-on event which brings together scientific leaders and business experts to mingle with scientists, post-docs, professors, entrepreneurs, innovators, and venture capitalists.

Can you still be creative? In every lab in every research institution and company, researchers are told that they should be creative.  But can researchers still be creative with the organizational and financial demands that are placed on research environments?  Do corporations and academics still have the courage to allow their teams to be really creative? If you want to do interesting and exciting science can you still get the funding? How does business and finance leadership view creativity? Our speakers and panelists will discuss the current battle to create innovation friendly environments and its impact on entrepreneurs and young researchers finding jobs.

The conference will feature Keynotes, Panels, Innovators' Marketplace, Networking Reception with leading life sciences CEO's , and Poster Competition - great prizes for 3 best posters!
