Looking forward to BIO #BIO2015
I am looking forward to this year’s BIO convention, as it returns to Philadelphia.
It will be a busy conference. In addition to connecting with colleagues, representing the Journal of Commercial Biotechnology, and this blog, I will also be signing books, giving a talk, and attending the Scientific American Worldview rollout.
I will be signing my textbook Building Biotechnology, and other books, in the BIO bookstore on Thursday June 18th from 10:00 am – 11:30 am. Building Biotechnology is used by dozens of schools, and I am always happy to meet professors, students, and industry professionals who have used the book. Stop by, even if it is just to say hello 🙂
On Thursday from 12:30 to 2pm in room 119B Mike May and I will be going over the seventh edition of Scientific American Worldview. Mike is the editor of Worldview. This is a more intimate session than the Super Session (below), and we will discuss the impetus for developing Worldview as well highlighting our findings from this year, and the trends we have seen over time. This is your best opportunity to have a deep discussion with the developers of Worldview.
At 2pm in room 114 is the Scientific American Worldview Super Session will feature commentary from international industry leaders. I always enjoy this event, as it provides a sounding board of how the analysis and stories in Worldview interact with global biotechnology.
