CABS Introduces Global Life Sciences Programs to Serve Singapore

San Francisco, CA, USA - (April 12, 2017) – CABS is very pleased to announce that we will introduce our global programs to serve the Singaporean life sciences community.

Headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area, CABS is one of the most influential non-profit life sciences organizations in the United States and China.

Our initial focus in Singapore is to provide the Singaporean life sciences community access to our global network and introduce flagship programs such as our Career Advisory Network (CAN), a mentorship program launched eight years ago in the United States, Entrepreneur Club (E-Club), an exclusive networking group to connect entrepreneurs and investors, Science Workshops, and BioPacific Conference held by CABS annually in the San Francisco Bay Area.

“Our vision is to serve as a gateway between the life sciences communities in Pacific Rim countries,” commented Dr. Cheni Kwok, President of CABS.  “By working closely with our advisors from local life sciences companies, global firms supporting life sciences, universities and research institutes at the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), we strive to foster new collaboration opportunities and exchanges between the life sciences community in Singapore and our current members in San Francisco Bay Area and China.”

“Associations such as CABS provide avenues for continuous learning, opportunities to build a stronger professional community amongst employees of biomedical companies, and help entrepreneurs gain access to global networks and membership. Today, Singapore is home to more than 50 biomedical sciences manufacturing plants, producing a wide range of products ranging from drugs to medical devices and equipment, with a combined manufacturing output of approximately $26 billion and employment of more than 19000 in 2015.  In tandem, we have a growing number of successful local enterprises in the biomedical sciences industry across medical devices, biopharmaceuticals and digital health. We welcome CABS’ engagements in Singapore and are committed to developing the industry in the years to come,” said Ms. Weng Si Ho, Director, Singapore Economic Development Board.

“We strive for building a strong membership base in Singapore, connecting local members to their peers in US and China, and promoting cross-border innovation and entrepreneurship. We hope to collaborate with local organizations and host more local events to better serve our members in Singapore in the near future” said Simon Cen, Chair of CABS Singapore.

Our introduction event will be held at 7pm-9pm on April 24, 2017. The event is free and open to all life sciences professionals, entrepreneurs and investors in Singapore. Members of the interested public and media are also welcome to attend.
