About EPPIC »

EPPIC was founded on March 4, 1998, by a group of Silicon Valley life science professionals who shared both a passion for their industry and a common heritage from the Indian subcontinent. EPPIC's mission is to promote networking, entrepreneurship and mentoring for life science professionals, create US-India life science synergy, and be a resource for industry and academia.

EPPIC is an entirely volunteer-driven non-profit organization run by individuals passionate about making a difference. EPPIC has a number of illustrious scientists and industry leaders as active members who are in synch with the latest ideas, trends, needs and drive the organization's mission. It is noteworthy that in the past 15 years EPPIC has organized over 50 quarterly networking events and seven annual conferences for the benefit of the life science community, not to mention the numerous start ups and longstanding mentoring relationships that have blossomed out of EPPIC meetings. EPPIC events have attracted sponsorships from well-regarded industry leaders and corporate houses. Industry leaders have endorsed EPPIC events for rich and meaningful science and engineering content and the valuable networking opportunities that EPPIC events create. EPPIC membership is open to all professionals interested in all sectors and functions in the life science industry.
