This issue will also contain the newly updated Biosciences Directory and Resource Guide cataloging all the bioscience-related companies, institutions and organization to be found in Michigan, and classified by functional sub-categories and location," Rapundalo said.
MichBio has also partnered with the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) in planning the MI Pavilion at the BIO International Conference in Atlanta May 18-21. "We've strived to improve Michigan's presence at this event including partnering with Illinois, Missouri and Kansas to host the Midwest Blues Reception, the largest social event of the conference week second only to BIO's Opening Reception," he added. Sixteen Michigan companies, institutions and organizations will join MichBio and the MEDC in the pavilion to help market the state's biosciences sector.
Rapundalo noted that the MichBio Expo and Conference is set for November 3 and 4 at the Radisson Plaza Hotel in Kalamazoo Rock Financial Showcase in Novi, and will include a robust program including the Emerging Biosciences Showcase, one-on-one business partnering meetings and a legislative policy town hall as well as workshops and track sessions on research and development, medical affairs and markets, emerging business, and manufacturing. Company tours, a poster session, hot innovations update and awards will also be part of this year's Expo.
