The Saturday Exchange is a reprise of the successful Biomed Exchange meeting, held for many years during the 1980-90′s. Well over 100 life science professionals gathered in Miami on a Saturday morning each month 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 FIU campus.
