Biotech Life Science Conference in Raleigh

The Raleigh Convention Center will be packed today and tomorrow for the annual CED Biotech Life Science Conference.  .

The economy is showing signs of improvement – and organizers of the annual Biotech Conference say that’s good for the life sciences. More than one thousand people are expected to attend – emerging biotech companies, policymakers and venture capitalists – looking for the next big thing. Bill Wofford – a partner at Hutchinson Law Group is a conference co-chair.  He says in a promotional video, there will be a lot of partnering going on.

"There’s going to be opportunities for small companies, big companies and investors to get together one-on-one to build those relationships that lead to deal-making."

Organizers say for the first time bio-pharma companies will also present at the conference.
