Cambridge Healthtech Institute Announces the Acquisition of Neurotech Investing and Partnering Conferences

Neurotech Conference to Join Life Science Conference Leader's Event Portfolio

NEEDHAM, MA--(Marketwired - November 02, 2016) - Cambridge Healthtech Institute (CHI), a division of Cambridge Innovation Institute (CII), announces the acquisition of the Neurotech Investing and Partnering Conference and the European Neurotech Investing and Partnering Summit, two of the industry's premier business and investment conferences for commercial neuroscience.

The Neurotech Conference portfolio, created by NeuroInsights more than a decade ago, consists of the Neurotech Investing and Partnering Conference, an annual North American conference, as well as the European Neurotech Investing and Partnering Summit, a bi-annual European conference. The annual conference draws more than 200 of the top industry leaders focusing on the next generation treatments for Alzheimer's, addiction, anxiety, depression, pain, sensory disorders, obesity, stroke, schizophrenia, sleep disorders, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, Parkinson's and more.

Both events will continue to be co-organized by The Neurotechnology Industry Organization, which is the first and only trade group that advocates on behalf of companies involved in neurotechnology.

Phillips Kuhl, President, Cambridge Innovation Institute, says, "CHI has been providing life science conferences for twenty-five years, and we are very excited to expand our life sciences conference portfolio with the addition of Neurotech Partnering and Neurotech Europe, two high quality and established events. We plan to continue a strong relationship with the Neurotech Industry Organization to ensure continuity of the superb content and networking that attendees have come to expect over the last decade. Also, we are pleased to confirm an ongoing advisory relationship with Zack Lynch and Casey Lynch, the co-founders of NeuroInsights."

The Neurotech Conferences provide a global forum where investors, executives, entrepreneurs, scientists and others involved in the development of new treatments and diagnostics for the brain and nervous system come together to shape the future of their organization and the industry.

"We wanted to be sure the Neurotech Conference portfolio would continue to have the quality, attention to detail, and key affiliations that have made it so successful. Over the years, we have watched many new relationships formed at these events that lead to successful new treatments and partnerships. We are confident that CHI will continue our tradition of excellence and work in concert with NIO to cultivate the things that make this conference so effective for the global commercial neuroscience community," said Zack Lynch and Casey Lynch, co-founders of NeuroInsights.

Allison Fenney, Executive Director of the Neurotechnology Industry Organization (NIO), agreed, "NIO is glad to have CHI as a new partner in co-hosting the North American and European conferences -- key events for our membership to connect with investors and potential partners as well as share lessons learned. The conference is an important time for NIO to share legislative and funding opportunities and identify issues impacting the industry as a whole and we look forward to a fruitful partnership."

Neurotech Investing and Partnering Conference is the premier partnering and investing conference for the neurotechnology industry including pharmaceuticals, medical devices, software and diagnostics for the brain and nervous system.
