MedTech is New York’s trade association for the bio/med industry. We are an innovative coalition of pharmaceutical, medical technology, and life sciences companies, research and academic institutions, suppliers, and service providers. We connect our member companies, entrepreneurs and academics to grow the region’s life sciences economy. Since our founding in 2004, we have boosted the success of our members through collaboration, education, and advocacy. We have a vision of New York as a nationally recognized bio/med hub where companies and professionals seek to do business. We pursue that vision through our mission to develop the relationships, tools, and programs that enable our members to bring tomorrow’s medical solutions to the healthcare marketplace.
We believe the best way to grow the bio/med economy is through collaboration. Consequently, we take a different approach than other trade associations.
- Our members come from all aspects of the bio/med economy, not simply a single industry segment.
- We bring together industry with the state’s leading academic institutions to form one organization with a united purpose.
