Posted by Dianna Matyola on Wed, Apr 10, 2019

Duke University is ranked 8th in research and development expenditures, with more than $1.1 billion in funding. A majority of that funding, specifically $950 million of it, goes directly to Life Science research. This is an exciting campus to spend the day networking with researchers, PIs and purchasing decision makers. There is always a good turnout at this show- last year we had 275 attendees!
