NEW YORK, April 8, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- Gerson Lehrman Group, the world's leading marketplace for expertise, and the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) announced an extension of their partnership with this latest initiative focused on providing the venture investment community, registered to attend the BIO National Venture Conference, with scientific expertise on the most promising early-stage biotechnology innovations.

GLG Council Members, including nationally recognized clinicians and researchers, will be speaking during therapeutic workshops at the inaugural BIO National Venture Conference, along with pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry senior executives to discuss innovative treatment advances in the fields of new antibiotics, RNA-based therapies, and stem cell/regenerative medicine.

"As with our efforts during the prestigious BIO CEO and Investor Conference in February 2008, we are very pleased to join with the Biotechnology Industry Organization to program the only truly independent conference series for healthcare industry decision makers, where the sole focus is premier education," said Alexander Saint-Amand, Chief Executive Officer of Gerson Lehrman Group. "By partnering with BIO and their highly respected investor conference series, Gerson Lehrman Group can make available its unparalleled network of healthcare experts to help educate decision makers in every industry by connecting them to the academic and industry leaders driving innovation and productivity in our global economy."

Through this partnership, BIO will tap into Gerson Lehrman Group's network of more than 175,000 experts from around the world. The panel speakers will be specifically identified to focus on some of the most interesting and novel development areas within the biotechnology industry: antibiotics, RNA-based therapies, and stem cell/regenerative medicine. These workshop topics were identified in a thorough vetting process by BIO in collaboration with the venture capital community.

"The depth and breadth of expertise available through Gerson Lehrman Group is a great fit for BIO's continuing efforts to provide cutting-edge education to our conference registrants, who themselves are some of the most informed healthcare industry experts," said Jim Greenwood, President and Chief Executive Officer of BIO. "Workshops selected for the BIO National Venture Conference are representative of the most compelling topics for biotechnology venture start-ups today, and focus on educating investors and industry on the latest areas of pipeline innovation, as well as strategies for capitalization and supporting product development objectives."

The first annual BIO National Venture Conference will feature select early-stage private biotechnology companies from across the U.S. The goal of this new national meeting is to bring together an elite group of healthcare venture partners for a concentrated one and a half day event. Workshops and plenary sessions on trends in the industry will also be held, with special focus on key success factors for early-stage companies, market trends, and financing. In addition, there will be formal and informal networking opportunities with industry CEOs and venture capital leaders.
