On behalf of Georgia Bio, I would like to invite you to join us at the Tenth Annual Georgia Life Sciences Summit, the Southeast region's largest bioscience conference, scheduled for September 27, 2011, at the AmericasMart Atlanta.
Since its beginning in 2001, the annual Georgia Life Sciences Summit has grown into the premier event for the Southeast's bioscience community. The Summit provides a forum for professionals from industry, academia and government to discuss major trends and issues, including topics related to scientific research, product development, financing, business development and public policy. It is the one time each year companies and universities have the opportunity to showcase Georgia's bioscience innovation. We expect approximately 1000 professionals from across Georgia, the Southeast and the nation to participate in this year's event.
This year's theme is "Bioscience at a Crossroads" and will focus on the evolving bio and pharma landscape, which is directly affecting discovery and development of new products, the availability of funding to support research and our ability to compete in a global society. The Summit also serves as the only life sciences exposition in Georgia with an exhibit hall featuring the latest research, technology and services at companies, universities and other organizations.
The Summit will provide you with the opportunity to participate in plenary sessions highlighted by nationally and internationally renowned speakers addressing key challenges plus numerous breakout sessions in which experts will share their insight, guidance, and prognostications on more specific issues facing various sectors of the industry. The day-long program will include subject tracks in four areas: therapeutics, diagnostics and vaccines; medical technology and devices; the changing landscape of pharma; and exciting new science. The Summit also features a Career Resource Center where professionals and college students can learn about bioscience jobs in Georgia.
So please join us for the 2011 Georgia Life Sciences Summit on September 27, 2011, and participate in what has become the pre-eminent networking and business event for the Southeast's fast-growing life sciences community.
