BRC Life Science Regional Technology Symposium

The Life Science Technology Symposium, a series of events designed to bring world class science to local scientists, is moving on to Princeton and Somerset.  If you missed the event in Blue Bell, PA or Woodbridge NJ, here are some of the comments we received form your colleagues  about the program : “ I've found the Technology Symposium quite impressive. I thoroughly enjoyed each presentation and look forward to day 2.”  and “I was very well run and organized! Great presentations too.” And most importantly “Your symposiums always have such great food!”
Keynote speakers for these events are W. Stephen Faraci, Executive Director and C.O.O. from Pfizer RTC,  Dimitris Agrafiotis V. P. of Informatics at Johnson and Johnson and Giora Feuerstein, VP Translational Medicine at Wyeth.

The 2 day program of each Life Science Symposium covers topics in Compound Profiling, RNA-technologies, Signal Transduction, Medicinal Chemistry and Biomarkers. Some of the Scientists presenting their work will be: Jingsong Wang, Director BMS,  Joanne Kamens, Senior Director of Discovery Research, RXi Pharmaceuticals, Samuel Chackalamannil, Distinguished Fellow, Schering-Plough, and Francois Vigneault, Post-Doctoral Fellow, Harvard Medical School - Church Lab.

Each event includes two days of abundant and delicious food at a world-class conference center. In addition, you can win great prizes as part of the attendee "Passport" game by stopping by exhibitor booths to get your passport stamped and networking with scientists at the event.

PS: Please review the following list of speakers and special events.

Note below that the Princeton Event includes access to a second symposium on the first day - "Advances Toward Personalized Medicine."
