There's been a lot of interest on the trade show floor in China Biotech Markets recently, and with good reason. While the US government's added ARRA life science research support the last few years it is winding down, in China, the government continues to support not only life science research, but physical and chemical science research programs as well.
Science Market Update
Are you a lab supplier who is in need of information on life science research marketplaces, funding stats, and science product events in Washington?

If significant research is any indication of the quality of lab sales leads at life science marketing events held on Columbia University’s campus, this next story is worth reading about. Columbia University Medical Center researchers conducted a significant study that has identified a number of metabolic expression changes in the gene expression data from 22 tumor types. The analysis also points to hundreds of medications that could remove a tumor’s fuel supply or inhibit a tumor’s synthesis. The study was published in Nature Biotechnology.
Lab product seminars are one of the best marketing tools used by scientific supply companies to gain product exposure, establish corporate credibility, and build brand recognition in the research community.
For those of you who don't know us well, we are a small family owned business with a drive to help those in the research industry get ahead. Like other small family owed businesses, our resources are often more limited than our vision, and like otherentrepreneuriall businesses, that doesn't stop us from trying to make things work better, faster, and easier whenever we can. In this business, technology is our friend.
Having said that, I must admit that sometimes the usefulness of new technologies is not immediately apparent. When my sister-in-law first mentioned Twitter at a family gathering a few years ago, I remember thinking " What a colossal waste of time that would be... "Who in the world cares if you are out drinking coffee with a Sally or are watching the latest Alien film?" The usefulness of having easily, accessible, simpler info did not really strike me until weeks later when I was having a conversation with friends who live on a narrow mountain road that was under construction. The workmen would tweet when the road was open and when it was blocked, so residents could get in an out with minimal car waiting time. And if the residents needed to leave they could give the workmen a heads up. This proved to be very useful.
The 225th Anniversary of the University of Pittsburgh will be celebrated this year. One of their most notable accomplishments was contributing to the launch of the "Biotech Industry". Herbert Boyer, a Pitt PhD graduate helped discover how to cut and transfer individual genes within the DNA molecule and transfer them from one organism to another. Boyer eventually founded Genetech, widely considered one of the first successful biotech companies.
With many accomplishments, in 2000, Herbert Boyer and his wife established the Herbert W. and Grace Boyer Chair in molecular biology in the University of Pittsburgh’s Department of Biological Sciences. Today the Herbert W. and Grace Boyer Chair in Molecular Biology is used to support an outstanding faculty member in the field of post-genomic molecular biology.

Is Reaching out to researchers to educate them about your new products not as rewarding as it once was?
