After teaming together for a successful Forum in 2016, Cavendish and AZBIO are joining together once again to host Cavendish’s 22nd BioHealth Impact Forum in October 2019.

AZBIO, a proud partner, is committed to building a top-tier life science industry in the State of Arizona. Arizona hosts a sizable and rapidly growing bioscience industry. State bioscience firms employed 25,686 in 2016 in 1,310 individual business establishments. Industry employment has grown by 9 percent since 2014, twice the growth rate of the nation, with four of the five major sub-sectors adding jobs during the period. Both drugs and pharmaceuticals and research, testing and medical labs have experienced double-digit job growth since 2014. Arizona inventors have been awarded nearly 2,000 bioscience-related patents since 2014, among the second quintile of states in patent activity. Since 2015, NIH awards to Arizona institutions have increased, reaching $189 million in FY 2017.

The Phoenix Forum is a centerpiece of the larger State of Arizona’s Bioscience Week, an annual tradition recognizing the tremendous power and promise behind the state’s bio community. Cavendish guests will be invited to join the AZBIO community for their 14th Annual AZBIO Awards and Gala on Wednesday, October 2.
