President's Corner

BayBio Annual Conference is now CALBIO2012

I am delighted to inform you of a significant and exciting change to the upcoming BayBio Annual Conference.  This March we will be launching CALBIO2012, a statewide conference that champions a “Driven by Patients” theme. Building upon the strong foundation of our Northern California annual meeting, we hope that this event will provide greater opportunities for our members to network, partner, fundraise and advocate.

BayBio has been working closely with BIOCOM for the past year, and together we have hosted three extremely successful events, the California Biotechnology CEO Conference in March 2011 and the California Industrial Biotechnology Conference in September 2010 and October 2011. CALBIO2012 is the next step in showcasing the resources, expertise and leadership in the state of California in life sciences.

BayBio recognizes that collaboration at the regional, state, federal and global level is how the life sciences industry will continue to thrive, in step with changes throughout the industry. BayBio and BIOCOM, with  support from CHI, are committed to collaborating to bring you the best  we have to offer in one powerful and effective life science event.

I hope you will join us in San Francisco on March 8 – 9, 2012.  Visit to learn more about CALBIO2012.
