BioParks 2008, a joint meeting of the Association of University Research Parks and Bio's Council of Biotechnology Centers, will feature intensive sessions centering on topics such as:

-- enhancing translational research (the process of taking new discoveries

from the laboratory to practical application and commercial viability);

-- creating high-performance cyber-infrastructure necessary to intensive

biomedical research;

-- sustainable, "green" building design for research facilities;


-- the economic impact of research parks into the 21st century economies of

nations across the world.

Conferees will hear from leading authorities in the field including: Dr. Barbara M. Alving, Director, National Center for Research Resources; Dr. Larry Smarr, Director, California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology; and Sandy K.
