ULI Chicago Webinar | Spotlight on the IMD
Tuesday, September 22, 2020
Join us for this discussion and learn how the Illinois Medical District (IMD) can become a global Life Sciences leader in the years ahead.
A 560-acre life sciences campus in central Chicago, the IMD generates $3.4B of economic activity per year and is the 2nd largest urban medical district in the country. But how can the IMD expand its impact to drive healthcare innovation globally?  Join leaders from the public and private sectors for a panel discussion on innovation, land use, partnership, and development. 
Discussions will include:
  • Why the IMD is poised to become Chicago’s life sciences innovation district with the potential to drive the region’s economy out of the COVID-19 crisis.
  • Overview of the IMD Master Plan and recent developments, including the Gateway Project, and the future growth pipeline.  
  • Attracting capital and end users to the IMD, and why this is an ideal opportunity to attract additional federal research funding that will further catalyze robust growth in the life sciences ecosystem in the IMD and surrounding neighborhoods.
