Life Science Marketing Events in NY Following NIH & NSF Grants

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Tue, Jul 30, 2013

Biotechnology Calendar, Inc.’s three back-to-back New York life science marketing events are quickly approaching starting October 1st, 2013, and they are the perfect opportunities for lab suppliers to market their university lab equipment and life science solutions. Our New York life science marketing events attracted 850 attendees last year. Of the attendees, 216 were purchasing agents, professors and post docs, and 83 were lab managers. The visitors represented 63 different research buildings and 153 departments across the three campuses. How many days of canvassing campuses would it take to visit over 150 research departments? These three life science marketing events introduce lab suppliers to hundreds of leads over the space of a few hours in just three days.

Columbia University, Rockefeller University and Stony Brook University have all recently received a wealth of NIH and NSF grants to conduct their research. The Columbia University Medical Center has an approximate annual research budget of $1 billion and a faculty of 5,462. According to Columbia News, the university recently received a $200 million donation for the construction of the new Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute. In 2012, the NIH awarded Columbia University $364 million in research funding, while the NSF awarded the university $95 million.

According to the National Association of College and University Business Officers, Rockefeller University is one the most fiscally stable research institutions in the United States. The University’s 2011 endowment totaled $1.7 billion, and areas of study include molecular cell and developmental biology, virology and microbiology, biochemistry, medical sciences and human genetics, immunology, structural biology, and neuroscience. The NIH gave Rockefeller University $70.1 million in 2012, while the NSF gave the university $844,385 in research funding.
