MAY 26, 2021

The 2021 Annual Awards Program has evolved significantly in the past few years, from a dinner to a documentary and this year to an open-air tailgate. Although the setting of this event has shifted, the value of the LSPA membership and life sciences industry continues to be the driving force behind honoring the lifetime achievement of some of our community’s leaders, and the accomplishments in 2020.

The life sciences industry in Pennsylvania delivered for the world in 2020, and the time came to celebrate and recognize the accomplishments! The celebration commenced on May 26 with an outdoor, open-air celebration of the life sciences at the 2021 Annual Awards Premier Tailgate. This drive-in style event featured LSPA’s most prestigious awards, safe networking opportunities, food trucks, and more!

Attendees brought their teams together and created their own block party with chairs, coolers, and décor to celebrate the life sciences community’s accomplishments during the past year. For the first time in over a year, guests reconnected with the community in person while adhering to all COVID-19 mitigation guidelines at The Discovery Labs Parking Lot, tailgate-style!
