Research Poster Session Deadline Jan. 24

BIO2007, a global biotechnology conference and trade show, is seeking research poster sessions for its May 6-9 event in Boston. Applicants should submit a Poster Abstract Submission Form by January 24, 2007 for consideration. Accepted posters are placed on display in the Innovation Corridor as part of BIO2007 where 19,000 biotechnology enthusiasts from around the world gather to network.

“The objective of the sessions is to cultivate world-class collaborations among academia, early stage research organizations, and industry. Topics will be related to academic research or development effort, which could potentially provide solutions to, or address, unmet needs in biotechnology. Poster abstracts should outline the problem the research or development effort addresses and identify potential commercial markets,” according to the BIO2007 web site.

Complete poster submissions details are available from the Innovations Corridor web page. Visit the BIO2007 web site for more information about the overall conference and trade show. Some research posters may qualify for financial assistance from the Office of Corporate Relations (OCR). To learn more about the potential assistance please visit the ORC web site and look for “Entrepreneurial Development Micro Grants” found under the “Funding Resources: Gap Funds and Grants” web page.

Wisconsin is represented at BIO2007 by a 1,600 square foot Wisconsin Pavilion on the trade show floor. The Wisconsin Pavilion is the result of a collaboration between the state, the university and bio-business partners. The goal is to promote Wisconsin research institutions and businesses as a center of biotechnology enterprise.
