The convention will feature more than 200 breakout sessions in 21 educational session tracks, including biodefense; bioethics; clinical research/clinical trials; devices and diagnostics; drug discovery and development; emerging company issues; finance; food and agriculture; industrial and environmental; intellectual property/legal; manufacturing; nanotechnology; technology transfer/licensing and other key business areas for doing biotech business globally.
The most popular educational tracks from the 2007 BIO International Convention included business development, clinical research, devices and predictive diagnostics and technology transfer. Super Sessions, Biotech Entrepreneurship Boot Camp and the Translational Research Forum all drew significant attendance.
Applications for educational sessions will only be accepted online, at http://www.bio2008.org/Attendees/program.html. The online application process closes on Friday, September 7th at 5:00 pm EDT.
