NYC Builds Bio+  is pleased to announce the September Quarterly Lunch,  focusing on the exciting new life sciences developments that are contributing to a scientific/medical renaissance in a “new Bronx,” one of the largest developing life science subclusters in NYC.

Since its founding in 1955, the mandate of Albert Einstein College of Medicine (located in the Bronx), has been to combine the pursuit of scientific excellence with the social mission to improve human health through engagement in the local, national and global communities. Einstein College of Medicine has been instrumental in helping to build the NYC life science ecosystem, commercializing its technology through licensing and sponsored research, invention disclosures and patent filings and the creation of nearly 50 life science companies. Today, it is adding an important new resource to NYC’s shared facilities and cores, a GMP Cell Therapy Facility called the Einstein Montefiore Biotechnology Accelerated Research Center (EMBARC). This Center integrates benchto- bedside therapeutics development supported by biotech and pharma companies and should lead to acceleration of commercialization and the formation of new life science companies.

Next to Einstein and on the Hutchinson Metro Center campus, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) is building a new Metro-North train station connecting Penn Station to Stamford CT. The Metro-North Morris Park station will be one of four new train stations in the Bronx and will provide direct access to Penn Station in less than 25 minutes.

Simone Healthcare is taking the Bronx to new heights with the expansion of the Company’s Hutchinson Metro Center, currently a 1.4 million square foot mixed-use campus of Class A office, medical, retail, hospitality and academic space on 42-acres. Upon completion of the expansion, the Hutchinson Metro Center will total 3.4 million square feet across 75-acres and will be a vibrant, knowledge oriented ecosystem and an academic center for higher education, healthcare, life sciences, and research and development supported by commercial enterprise and two residential buildings available for students, scientists, researchers and healthcare professionals. Tune in to hear how the campus is offering an experiential combination of hospitality, retail, dining, athletics, arts and culture, and green spaces to create a community of thought and innovation in The Bronx.

Tune in to hear how the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Hutchinson Metro Center are transforming The Bronx through an experiential combination of hospitality, retail, dining, athletics, arts and culture and green spaces, and how they’re driving both a sense of community and innovation throughout The Bronx.
