The Biotech Connector is a quarterly networking and speaker series, hosted by the Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research and Frederick County Chamber of Commerce. These hybrid scientific events promote and support Frederick County and surrounding areas’ biotech and bioscience community by bringing together life science experts for an inside look at local advances, a chance to share expertise, and the opportunity to network with other scientists and entrepreneurs.

The Biotech Connector highlights important topics in the biomedical field, including cancer research, immunotherapy, artificial intelligence, and vaccines formulation. The series also provides an overview of novel technologies in biological sciences.

The events attract various professionals from the Frederick National Laboratory, National Cancer Institute, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and other areas within the National Institutes of Health, as well as industry, academia, and non-profit organizations.

Biotech Connector events are free and open to the public, with in-person and virtual options.


The Frederick County Chamber of Commerce manages the sponsorship for Biotech Connector events. In 2023, coffee and light refreshments were provided by our sponsor McBee Moore & Vanik IP, LLC.
