The 2013 Utah Life Science Summit is presented by BioUtah, Utah's official life science association, which was launched at the 2012 Summit.

The caliber of the content and people involved is exceptional, across the board.”
The fourth annual Summit will feature four simultaneous tracks—Entrepreneurial, Regulatory, Strategic Pillars (mature companies) and State of the Sector. Every track consists of highly respected experts in their particular fields of endeavor. In addition, all participants will attend three plenary sessions: a breakfast keynote session, lunchtime awards ceremony and closing funding panel. The agenda and registration information for the Summit is available on a dedicated section of the BioUtah website, http://bioutah.org/2013-summit/.
