Each year, Biotechnology Calendar, Inc. produces two Semiannual Biotechnology Vendor Showcase™ events at the University of California, San Francisco. Last year, the events at the Parnassus and Mission Bay campuses attracted 604 attendees. Of these attendees, 189 were purchasing agents, professors and post docs, and 97 were lab managers.
UC San Francisco ranked number one in the US for Life Science R&D expenditures in 2014. It is a $1 billion research market located within a $3 billion campus. In 2015, The NIH awarded UCSF over $563 million in life science research funding.
Several New Research Facilities Were Announced in 2016:
- Earlier this year, UCSF received a $185 million donation to create a new neuroscience institute. The institute will be housed in a soon-to-be-built $316 million new research facility, providing 270,000 square feet for research and outpatient services where medical practitioners and researchers can collaborate on projects.
- UCSF recently was awarded $24 million last month for a new bioengineering research facility on the Mission Bay campus.
- Also in 2016, UCSF was granted $20 million for a new HIV research institute.
This year the Biotechnology Vendor Showcase™ events at the Parnassus and Mission Bay campuses will be held back to back on January 19, 2017 and January 20, 2017. This means that you can exhibit your lab or chemical supply products to 600+ researchers at this $1 billion marketplace in just two days.
