We’d like to remind you that The 12th Annual PIUG Biotechnology Conference  will be held Tuesday, February 20 through Wednesday, February 21, 2018 in Boston at the Kimpton Marlowe Hotel in Cambridge, MA. The meeting theme is  The Evolution of Biotech Searching: New Approaches for Old Problems. Detailed program information is available.

The members for the discussion panel, Challenges for New Searchers in the Biotech Industry: Training and Entry have also been posted on the Program page along with their short bios.

A big addition to the program has just been added.  EPO will be presenting a workshop entitled Searching Peptides and Proteins and Second Medical Use Claims from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM with a break at 10:30 AM.  Breakfast, breaks and lunch will then be provided for those attending the EPO workshop and those attending the two vendor workshops, BizInt and GQ Life Sciences, in the afternoon.  Please register for all of the workshops being held on February 20, 2018. Enhance your conference experience and sign-up for the networking dinner on February 21, 2018.  Please sign up now because seating is limited.

If you haven't booked a room at the conference hotel, the room block at reduced rates closes tomorrow, January 30, 2018.  This will be your last chance for room rates at $129/night in Cambridge.  The location is convenient to public transportation and downtown Boston and the accommodations are quite nice.  However, the room block is almost full so we suggest booking your room now to get this fantastic rate for Cambridge. 

NOTE: More information along with maps of the city and the hotel are located in the Meeting App.  If you haven't downloaded the app yet, please go to the Meeting App page where instructions are provided along with an overview of its features.  After you log in to the app, you are encouraged to edit your profile and perhaps add a headshot photo to assist when networking.  The profile is only available when you grant access to registrants requesting it.

A reminder that the GQ Life Sciences User Meeting is being presented in the same hotel on Thursday, February 22, 2018.

Looking forward to seeing you at the meeting!
