General registration is now open for the Rocky Mountain Region’s Premier Bioscience Conference & Expo, BioWest 2010, at the event website. This year's event, September 29 & 30 at Denver's Grand Hyatt (1750 Welton), is headlined during the Annual Awards Dinner by Colorado State University Animal-Science Professor Dr. Temple Grandin, whose HBO made-for-cable biopic just swept the Prime Time Emmy® Awards with five major and two creative arts award wins for her inspiring life story as a renowned animal scientist and autism activist.
The announcement is made by Holli Baumunk, President and CEO of the Colorado BioScience Association (CBSA), who says, “This is the eighth annual BioWest conference and the best to date. More than 700 national and international industry leaders, government representatives, executives, researchers, investors, entrepreneurs, and professional services firms are expected to attend.”
Baumunk continues, “BioWest is the region’s preferred venue for visiting with researchers about their newest discoveries and meeting founders of the area’s most innovative and promising bioscience start-up companies. Dr. Grandin, whose work is a prime example of the important research being done in Colorado, headlines an impressive lineup of speakers during the BioWest Conference, and we are all looking forward to her awards dinner keynote. Further, the conference will again showcase Colorado's early-stage companies during a research poster session and at the popular Venture Showcase Competition with four companies presenting to win a $7,500 grand prize.”
