NEW YORK, April 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Alexandria Real Estate Equities, Inc.
(NYSE: ARE), an approximately $9 billion total market capitalization real
estate investment trust uniquely focused on clustering Class A assets in urban
science and technology campuses located in the heart of centers of innovation,
announced that the Alexandria Summit on Digital Health is being held today at
the Alexandria Center for Life Science in New York City.

Digital health – the convergence of life science, healthcare, and
technological innovation – is poised to revolutionize the American healthcare
system. With the collaborative interaction of sectors, companies, and varied
business models focused on digital health, including information technology,
cloud computing, smartphones, nanotechnology, and cost-effective genome
sequencing, this emerging sector has a unique and profound ability to drive
the development of new therapies, to empower patients, to increase quality of
care, and to provide greater cost efficiencies. This unprecedented convergence
of life science, healthcare, and technology is occurring in the nation's urban
centers of innovation, including New York City, San Francisco, Greater Boston,
Seattle, and San Diego. Alexandria is uniquely positioned to support the
industry's growth through its dominant market presence in these AAA locations
and its Class A urban science and technology campuses designed to foster
collaboration.

"Alexandria is bringing together its diverse and world-class network from life
science, healthcare, and technology at our New York City campus to foster
impactful collaborations and drive innovation in digital health," said Joel S.
Marcus, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer, and Founder of Alexandria Real
Estate Equities, Inc., Alexandria Venture Investments (the Company's strategic
venture arm), and the Alexandria Summit. "We believe that the Alexandria
Summit, through its highly unique platform, will lead to groundbreaking
results that increase the effectiveness and efficiency of our healthcare
system and improve human health worldwide."

"Digital health offers the opportunity to transform all aspects of the
American healthcare system," said Robert J. Hugin, Chairman and Chief
Executive Officer of Celgene Corporation, an Alexandria client tenant and
attendee of the Alexandria Summit on Digital Health. "Advancing digital health
will accelerate the discovery of new therapies, align incentives and outcomes
in healthcare delivery, better inform treatment paradigms and protocols, and
improve prevention and wellness initiatives that improve the length and
quality of people's lives."

Joel S. Marcus founded the Alexandria Summit in 2010, driven by the belief
that by bringing together Alexandria's world-class global network in an
invitation-only, independent, and highly collaborative forum, Alexandria could
stimulate innovative ways of thinking, accelerate the discovery and
development of life-saving, cost-effective therapies, and move the field
forward. Representing the broad and diverse life science community, the
collective voice gathered at that first Alexandria Summit worked together to
advance actionable meeting outcomes, including helping to reshape PDUFA
legislation and modernize FDA guidance. Realizing that the potential of
digital health will require truly disruptive innovation, the Alexandria Summit
on Digital Health will gather critical stakeholders from life science,
technology, non-profit, government, and healthcare and provide a
groundbreaking opportunity to think collaboratively, strategically, and
disruptively to advance the promise for healthcare innovation offered by
digital health.
