Business Opportunities in Bio-IT for Software and Internet Companies

Newton Marriott, Newton
Registration and breakfast begin at 7:45 AM.

This program is sponsored by Bio-IT World

Join us as we take a look at how the Bio-IT space is unfolding and identify new business opportunities for software and Internet companies! Major advances in molecular biology and genomic technologies have led to an explosion of biological information generated by pharmaceuticals, biotechs and the scientific community in general.

With the advent of the Human Genome Project, science-based companies find themselves managing huge amounts of data, which in turn has created an urgent need for software tools to store, organize, index, view and analyze this data. Their ability to do so quickly and accurately has a direct impact on the cost and speed with which they can bring new products to market. This new demand for IT products and expertise opens the door for a host of new opportunities in Bio-IT for software and Internet companies.

Moderated by John Dodge, Executive Editor, Bio-IT World, topics and panelists include:

Overview of the Bio-IT Market
Debra Goldfarb, Group Vice President for Life Sciences Research, IDC
