“On the Table” Lunch hosted by the Chicago Biomedical Consortium

“On the Table” was a series of community conversations marking the kick-off of The Chicago Community Trust’s Centennial year on May 12. The CBC was delighted to host an “On the Table” luncheon to celebrate the outstanding philanthropic support provided by the Searle Funds at The Chicago Community Trust. The luncheon was also an opportunity to discuss the state of the biomedical, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical industries in the region, and collaborative ways to keep these industries resilient.

Twenty-two people attended the lunch, including representatives from all three CBC universities, pharmaceutical companies, venture investors, The Chicago Community Trust and Searle Consultants. The lively and informative discussion centered on future CBC directions that could strengthen the biomedical enterprise and promote the development of the biomedical industry in Chicago.
