Lab suppliers interested in marketing their life science products and working to sell lab equipment in North Carolina may want to take note of Biotechnology Calendar, Inc.’s University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill life science events. Our Chapel Hill BioResearch Product Faire™ Event will take place on May 7th, 2014. In 2012, the Chapel Hill BioResearch Product Faire™ Event attracted 87 attendees. Of those who attended, 37 were purchasing agents, professors and post docs, and 15 were lab managers. The attendees came from 14 different research buildings and 25 departments across campus.
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center recently received $6.7 million from the NIH this year. On the NIH website, the project leader is listed as Henry Shelton Earp, MD, a professor in the Department of Medicine and the Director of the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center. According to the UNC Chapel Hill webpage, Dr. Earp’s lab is focused on how signals from membrane receptors are transduced to nucleus altering cell shape, proliferation, differentiation and gene expression. The NIH RePORTER provides more information on the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center in Dr. Earp’s funding request abstract:
Biotechnology Calendar, Inc. selects a winner of our Five Star Program at the end of every life science show who demonstrated outstanding communication and marketing skills in working to sell lab equipment and life science products. Our Five Star Winners communicate well with attendees, demonstrate their products, compose themselves professionally and create eye-catching displays. Generally, our Five Star Winners attract a large number of attendees to their table, work until the very end of the show and do an excellent job communicating their product’s message.
Researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill recently received a $3.5 million NIH award for their study “Gene Expression Patterns in Human Tumors Identified Using Transcript Sequencing.” The study is being led by Charles Perou, PhD. According to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill website, Dr. Perou is a distinguished professor of genomics at the university whose research interests include characterizing the biological diversity of human tumors using genomics, molecular genetics and cell biology.
Lab suppliers hoping to increase lab sales leads and market university lab equipment may be interested to know that funding in North Carolina is increasing at a rapid rate. The triangle universities in North Carolina, which include Duke University, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and North Carolina State University, were awarded over $2 billion in research funding for the 2012-2013 school year, according to the Triangle Business Journal.
In May of 2013, BioTechnology Calendar, Inc. will present Chapel Hill's annual New Technologies and Lab Products Event. This Chapel Hill BioResearch Product Faire™ on Campus laboratory science event will be held at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill where both exhibitors and researchers can meet and discuss the newest and best laboratory products in the market.
Exhibitors, if you are looking for value and visibility in a very competitive marketplace look no further than our Nationwide BioResearch Product Faire Front Line™ (BRPF) University events. At our BRPF Front Line Events™ you can anticipate a streamline event with all the most essential elements for sales success. These event locations are usually smaller and more intimate, than our BioResearch Product Faire™ and Biotechnology Vendor Showcase™ events.
