Join colleagues at Wareham's Aquatic Park Center campus in Berkeley for the latest luncheon series, co-hosted by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and QB3 East Bay Innovation Center.

February speakers are Biocom's Michelle Nemits, Bay Area Executive Director, and Melanie Cohn, Director of Regional Policy and Government Affairs. Biocom is the largest advocate for California's life science sector. They will discuss the Bay Area life science ecosystem and regional policy agendas.

Biocom's regional government affairs efforts focus on taxation, land use, transportation, housing, water, and regulatory policy at the city and county levels of government. We seek to build relationships between our members, legislators, and regulators to ensure that the life science industry is considered in regulatory implementation and future policy.

Michelle Nemits is responsible for building the framework to enable the creation of a strong, well-connected life science community in the Bay Area, as well as on-boarding new Biocom members and ensuring they take advantage of membership benefits.

Melanie Cohn is responsible for managing and implementing Biocom's regional policy agendas in San Diego, Los Angeles, and the Bay Area. She proactively lobbies public officials to advance the interests of Biocom's members.

The Wareham Development Speaker Series provides a free brown bag lunch and presentation.
