LexaMed will be exhibiting at BioFlorida’s 12th Annual Celebration of Biotechnology on Thursday, May 7, 2015. This event is located at the RTI Surgical Campus.
The Celebration of Biotechnology is an outdoor event showcasing the life science community in the area and throughout Florida. Now, in its 12th year and hosted by the UF Sid Martin Biotechnology Incubator and RTI Surgical, the Celebration continues to attract more than 80 organizations and 500 professionals. Exhibit space was expanded this year to accommodate the demand, reflecting an increased activity within the life sciences industry.
The event offers tours of local biotech companies, lots of exciting and informative exhibits and great networking. The Celebration will also feature guest speaker Randy Scott, Partner of HealthQuest Capital, who will present “Follow the Money,” celebrating the 50th anniversary of Gatorade and demonstrating the value of having the right mix of researchers, universities and intellectual property. A Media Hour will take place from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
The Celebration of Biotechnology draws hundreds of industry professionals from emerging and established life sciences companies; universities and research institutions; economic development agencies, investment networks and firms, and supporting organizations to Progress Park – just north of Gainesville on I-75. The event’s atmosphere is designed to encourage conversations and connections that will help attendees grow in their respective fields.
