FRAXA Biotech Games™
The wildly successful FRAXA Biotech Games™ return to Cambridge for the second year! Who will earn bragging rights as the top company?
FRAXA Biotech Games™ raise money for research while giving members of the Boston biotech community the opportunity to meet each other and network in a friendly setting to share camaraderie, experiences and expertise which then strengthens the Boston scientific ecosystem.
Proceeds of the event support FRAXA Research Foundation, which funds Fragile X research in Boston area labs, including the Mark Bear Lab at MIT’s Picower Institute and the Jeannie Lee Lab at Harvard/Mass General. FRAXA’s mission is to find effective treatments and ultimately a cure for Fragile X, the most common inherited cause of autism and learning disabilities worldwide.
