Join DIA Board Members, Fellows, members, colleagues and those working in the health care product development ecosystem for a complimentary reception and kickoff to DIA 2018 in Boston!

Join us for food, drinks, and networking with a multidisciplinary group of colleagues that share your passion to bring treatments to patients. As an added bonus, DIA has convened a small panel discussion on career development.

The reception is complimentary for DIA Members and Boston Training Attendees, while $10 for nonmembers.

Boston is a key global biopharma innovation hub, home to large pharma and biotechs, incubators, small start-ups, and outstanding academic research centers. DIA Members and their colleagues are leaders and contribute to Boston’s health care product development successes. We are so excited to kick-off a year-long series of events building up to the DIA 2018 Global Annual Meeting in Boston. This annual gathering will bring thousands of health care experts and regulators from around the world together in one venue!
