“I have had the opportunity to give presentations to VCs and Pharma Venture Funds at several Venture Day events. These experiences have been very helpful with respect to meeting investors from outside the San Diego area and also for valuable feedback. This is an important Biocom program!”
Michael J. Newman, CEO, Decoy Biosystems
“”Presenting at Biocom this year helped put Forge on the radar of several investors seeking to put money to work in the antibiotic space. The conference not only gave me the opportunity to meet the interested investors face-to-face but also gave me a platform to describe our funding strategy and growth trajectory, which gave us additional momentum leading to upsizing our Series A round. In fact, after my presentation multiple investors that were ‘circling the hoop’ were now ready to jump into the game and asked if they could participate in the Series A financing.””
Zachary Zimmerman, Ph.D, CEO, Forge Therapeutics, Inc.
“The Biocom team has helped LJI by having every level of government personally visit LJI and we’re able to show them all the great work we are doing.”
Albin Soares, Director, Research Relations and Executive Director, La Jolla Institute for Allergy & Immunology

The Administration has proposed to impose tariffs on $3 billion worth of medical technology. Such a decision could hurt U.S. manufacturing, reduce our competitiveness in overseas markets, and increase healthcare costs, thus limiting patient access to life-saving technology. Please help us tell Congress that it is of utmost importance to oppose these tariffs.
