Key to the New York metro area becoming a successful biotech cluster is the availability of affordable lab space for the region's innovators in biotechnology and life sciences. That’s why a group of post-doctoral researchers from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai formed the nonprofit organization, Keystone for Incubating Innovation of Life Sciences (KiiLN). They are aggressively seeking space for prospective entrepreneurs as they nurture the biotech innovation in New York City and beyond. And that’s why the Westchester County Association—advocates for the region's growth as a healthcare innovation hub—met with KiiLN’s principals to discuss how the organizations could work together to support life science entrepreneurship.

Westchester County hospitals and providers have traditionally provided world-class care and now they are about to take a great leap forward, notes Marissa Brett, WCA president, in a featured column on the state of Westchester's healthcare sector in the Aug. 25 edition of the Westchester County Business Journal...
What a difference a few months make! The news about young people leaving Westchester County’s wealthiest towns in droves, released in a report by Community Housing Innovations last February, has improved. According to a recent analysis of the latest U.S. Census Data, several Westchester towns saw a reduction in the numbers of 25- to 34-year-olds exiting their communities, and some revealed gains. The latest data were presented at recent event at Purchase College, SUNY, by Alexander Roberts, the executive director of the affordable housing advocacy group, who said communities with less expensive housing have shown better results.
