Members and friends of Virginia Bio,
Come join us next Thursday April 23 at our statewide conference THRiVE: Creating the future of bioscience in Virginia. This day-long event is a rare opportunity to gather with bioscience leaders from all aspects of our community from all across the state, and participate in unique, informative and game-changing programs.
Just this week VBHRC/”the Catalyst” announced it is opening another round of applications for grant funding for the development and commercialization of life science projects in the state
, and Mike Grisham, CEO of the Catalyst, will be with us to explain the process and talk to would-be applicants
. Be among the first to pursue this terrific opportunity!
You will rarely have another opportunity like this, to meet, in one convenient place, the grantmaking officers from several of the highest funding NIH Institutes, plus NSF, DARPA and DOD
, to hear them discuss their programs and meet with interested people. Come take advantage of this convenient concentration of expertise and federal funding.
The afternoon’s plenary session, the Governor’s Forum on Bio and Big Data / Analytics, is the best chance you will ever have to become of aware of what is going on now in Virginia at the convergence of data science and bio, and meet many of the people who are doing it
. We’ve assembled a superb lineup of national thought leaders and a large sampling of Virginia companies and researchers who are applying data science to bioscience and medicine in extraordinary ways. You’ll learn cutting edge work, get ideas, meet the actors, see the great opportunities ahead, and be there on Day One as we start working on how to take advantage of this strategic opportunity for Virginia to distinguish itself and take global leadership where data science and bio meet.
Join us! Enjoy your colleagues, and move ahead. By participating you’ll better equip yourself to help your organization reach its goals, and you’ll help the bioscience industry in Virginia thrive!
