Welcome to the Greater Boston Life Sciences Corridor, home to the World’s Largest Cluster of Life Science and Biotech Companies, with more than 730 companies spanning five thriving communities all connected by the region's transit system. We warmly invite BIO 2018 guests from around the world to join us in exploring opportunities in life sciences and biotech across the Life Sciences Corridor and learn why this region is well positioned in offering a great location to live, work, and discover.
 
Boston’s Longwood Medical and Area (LMA) is a thriving community of medical, academic, research and cultural organizations, home to over 46,000 scientists, researchers and staff, and over 21,000 students. The LMA is one of the densest medical communities in the United States. Across 213 acres, you will find four teaching hospitals, Harvard Medical School, a state mental health clinic, a diabetes research center and clinic, and a number of colleges and biomedical firms. LMA has a long history of medical innovation; this is where the first successful human organ transplant occurred, the first human ovum fertilized in a test tube, and even the first heart surgery on a fetus in the womb.
 
Upon touring LMA to explore some of the key institutions and development opportunities in this unique neighborhood of Boston, you will also have the opportunity to visit the Fenway neighborhood, an area in transformation that is attracting high tech companies including Decibel Therapeutics, a vibrant creative scene, and a range of diverse restaurants.
 
Tours will pick up and drop off at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. Tour cost: $35.00.
