The Bioscience Association of West Virginia (BioWV), with sponsorship from BIO, PhRMA, Mylan, and TechConnect West Virginia, will hold the 3rd Annual West Virginia Biosciences Summit on Thursday, February 28, 2013 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., at the Marriott Hotel in Charleston, West Virginia.  A reception will be held the evening of Wednesday, February 27 to provide members of the life science industries an opportunity to network with West Virginia policy makers.

This event will highlight the role and impact of the bioscience industry in West Virginia and the region, showcase research and commercialization efforts taking place at West Virginia universities and private companies, and discuss policies and programs to help nurture the industry.

The agenda and presenter information will be announced once finalized, but key topics will include policies and programs to grow the industry, university research ready for commercialization, WV bioscience company highlights, among others.

This event will bring together West Virginia’s bioscience community – private companies, university researchers, suppliers and funders – as well as policy and opinion leaders, economic developers and others to learn more about how we successfully grow and nurture this important industry in West Virginia.

Sponsorship opportunities are available, as is exhibit space.  For additional information, contact Bryan Brown at (304) 546-5500.
