Driving Thought Leadership. Forging Connections. Delivering Results.

The Bay Area is long established as a hotbed for biotech innovation and clinical research in the USA.  Some 3,400 life science companies call the area home, with multinationals, start-ups, virtual organisations, and everything in between engaged in a healthy balance of fierce competition and cross-industry collaboration to bring new treatments to market.

Silicon Valley’s influence is strong, fostering substantial VC investment, and combining with one of the highest standards of living in the US to attract top talent to the region.  The Bay Area is home to 2 of the world’s top 10 universities, developing local and international human capital that feeds into the life science ecosystem.

COG Bay Area brings together senior decision-makers from across the Bay Area community of trial sponsors, as well as from up and down the West Coast, to hear from thought leaders within industry, regulators, and academia alongside a group of the most trusted and innovative solution providers serving this thriving market for two days of leading multi-stream agenda content and networking engagement at an easy to reach, premium Burlingame hotel.

We’re delighted to host COG Bay Area as the premier meeting place for the Bay Area’s clinical trial sector, and look forward to welcoming you in California in October!
