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.

In yesterday’s blog, Biotechnology Calendar, Inc. spotlighted two schools receiving funding from the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Funding totaled $2.5 million and will be given to a network of nine institutions searching for a cure for MS including the Mayo Clinic, the University of California at San Francisco, Stony Brook University, the University of Alabama at Birmingham, Children’s Hospital Boston, Texas Children’s Hospital, Loma Linda University, the State University of New York at Buffalo and Massachusetts General Hospital.
How will you get to Stony Brook in October? Take the Long Island Rail Road from the City? The ferry from Bridgeport, CT? Rent a car at La Guardia? Either way, it promises to be a gorgeous trip (think fall color) and an excellent show. Here’s a sampling of what Stony Brook University boasts:
Who doesn’t dread that soft buzzing sound we recognize as the imminent attack of the summer mosquitos? Fortunately for world health, the disease factor associated with these insects may one day be a thing of the past, thanks to innovative research being done in university laboratories across the U.S. Our Science Market Update has been keeping track of such research. Earlier we reported on work at UC Irvine; more recently we looked at a very different approach in a biogenetics lab at Rockefeller University.
