Posted by BCI Staff on Fri, Dec 12, 2014

Biotechnology Calendar, Inc. Presents:

The BioResearch Product Faire™ Event at Longwood Medical in Boston.

Harvard University is a nearly 1 billion-dollar player in a multi-million dollar life science research marketplace and right next door is Longwood Medical. 

The 2015 event at Longwood Medical, across from Harvard University will be held on June 10, 2015.

Lab suppliers will want to take advantage of this huge market by exhibiting at our upcoming Boston event on Wednesday, June 10th, 2015. By exhibiting at the event, lab suppliers will be able to meet with over 200 active life science researchers who are interested in finding new lab equipment that can help them with their research projects. This is a popular event both with lab supply companies and researchers, and both will benefit from attending the upcoming event. 

By attending this event, exhibitors are able to: 

  • Gather lab sales leads
  • Increase brand awareness
  • Build customer relationships
  • Market new products directly to researchers


Science professionals get new lab sales leads at the Longwood Medical Bioresearch Product Faire™.

Harvard University Funding Information: 

With $330.8 million NIH funding in 2014, and $480.4 million in R&D expenditures, plus private funding from foundations and individuals, Harvard is a large and growing market opportunity for lab supply companies looking to expand their reach.

Philanthropist Len Blavatnik recently donated $50 million in a multi-year grant to Harvard to fund scientific research. On top of that, the Harvard Medical Center for Biomedical Informatics received 2 grants totaling $28 million to continue the study of neuropsychiatric illness and new approaches to precision medicine.

Projects at Longwood Medical that have broken the $10 million mark in NIH approved grants so far include:

  • $35,860,542 for Large Scale Sequencing and Analysis of Genomes at Broad Institute,
  • $22,215,738 to the Harvard Clinical and Translational Science Center at Harvard University Medical School,
  • $12,739,167 for the New England Primate Research Center Base Grant at Harvard Medical School, and
  • $11,164,583 for the Cancer Center Support Grant at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. 
Laboratory equipment suppliers demonstrate their products to Harvard life science researchers.


Given Harvard University’s groundbreaking research and impressive life science funding statistics, it’s clear that Harvard University is a market with a lot of potential for sales leads at life science events. Biotechnology Calendar, Inc. invites lab suppliers to network with others in their field at our Boston BioResearch Product Faire™ event on June 10, 2015.
