I will be speaking at the Colorado BioScience Association BIOBOOT CAMP 2013.  This annual event is a 2-day program for start-up company executives. Attendees learn valuable information from experienced entrepreneurs about how to build a company designed to commercialize bioscience technologies while avoiding dangerous pitfalls that are typically encountered along the way.

This year’s event takes place April 18-19, 2013.  My presentation, which is entitled Preclinical Development: Drugs and Vaccines, will take place on April 19 at 8:00 am.  I will be discussing the FDA’s influence on a company’s drug development program, and how senior management can prepare their company’s programs for increasing FDA oversight as they move closer to commercialization.

The Colorado BioScience Association (CBSA) has supported the bioscience industry in Colorado for the past ten years.  It is a not-for-profit organization providing services and support for Colorado’s bioscience industry. With more than 350 members, CBSA actively works to promote the growth of the industry by advocating for a better business environment, growing the state’s biotech workforce, fighting for policies that support a strong bioscience industry in the state, and speaking with a single voice on behalf of the industry.

This is the second year I’ll be presenting at BioBoot Camp and it is an invaluable event for early stage companies.  There is no fee to participate. However, applicants must apply for admittance.  Application deadline is April 5, 2013.
