What happens when the brightest researchers in Seattle get together to talk, eat, drink and listen to each other?
Join us May 24 for the organizational meeting of BioScience on the Brink. Science exchange overlooking Lake Union.
Seattle has a tremendous number of researchers working on a wide variety of projects covering biosciences. Meet some of them.
In both for-profit and non-profit research settings they are exploring problems in global health, biotechnology, bioinformatics and much more. Discuss their work.
Science on the Brink will be an informal space for them to talk with peers and to hear presentations from this vast array of scientists. Exchange knowledge.
Science on the Brink will provide a place where young researchers, working hard at the bench, can connect with other scientists who are perhaps developing novel drugs, designing clinical trials or perhaps even selling pharmaceuticals.They will be working at non-profit institutions or for-profit corporations. There might even be some interested laypeople in the mix.
The plan is to have an opportunity for networking with some good food and drink, along with a couple of short (20 minute) presentations by working researchers. This will generally not be a place for CEOs and department heads to present. They have many opportunities to do that. These presentations will be for the younger scientists – the scientific leaders of tomorrow.
This organizational meeting is to gauge the enthusiasm for such an event and to discuss future ideas. We are asking for a nominal fee in order to cover some of the costs for food and for the venue. However, the ticket price will be discounted – and SpreadingScience will pay all service fees – until May 10.
The Eastlake Bar and Grill is centrally located to the greatest concentration of researchers. It has a great deck overlooking Lake Union which should be fabulous in May.
This should be an invigorating meeting in a wonderful location. If you would like to have some critical input into the future of these meetings, be sure to attend.
Hurry. Space is limited.
