The Saturday Exchange is a reprise of the successful Biomed Exchange meetings, held for many years during the 1980-90’s. Well over 100 life science professionals gathered in Miami on a Saturday morning each month during that time period, to learn about various aspects of our community’s growing life sciences cluster. Today we are excited to rebuild part of the community into the next century at the beautiful UM Life Science Park, the new home to the Saturday Exchange. Come join the future today!
