Today kicks off the Biotechnology Industry Organization's 2011 International Convention. The four-day event is one of the biopharmaceutical research sector's largest gatherings and is sure to generate some interesting coverage.
We'll highlight some of that coverage for you here on The Catalyst, and I'll be sharing some first-hand thoughts from my attendance at the meeting.
To help you follow the convention even more closely from afar, our friends at BIO have set up an extensive social media network, complete with hashtags that allow you to tailor the news you receive. They are as follows: #bio2011, #biobusinessforum, #bioexhibitors, #bio2011_health, #bio2011_ag, #bio2011_industl, #bio2011_intl, #bio2011_states, #bio2011_manufact, #bio2011_finance, and #bio2011_policy.
Of course, you can always follow the news on Facebook at IAmBiotech
Check back throughout the week, and if there's any particular session you'd like to see me cover, tell me in the comments. I'll see what I can do.
