Xconomy Seattle — 

[Editor’s note: This editorial was co-authored by Neile Grayson, who, along with Valerie, is a co-chair of the program committee for Life Sciences Innovation Northwest 2010.]

On March 16-17, 2010, the Washington Biotechnology & Biomedical Association (WBBA) will present Life Science Innovation Northwest 2010 (formerly “Invest Northwest”). This tenth annual conference has a new name, a new look, and a new program. Innovation has supercharged the Pacific Northwest’s biotech and medical device industries for decades. And our life sciences companies, nonprofit research institutes and global health organizations are leading the way. And, we are pushing forward some of the most compelling technology breakthroughs of our time. As such, this year’s forum has been refocused and rebranded to better identify and highlight these unique and powerful assets, defining the Pacific Northwest’s life science sector.

Life Science Innovation Northwest will bring public and private life sciences companies, research institutions, scientists, entrepreneurs, and our global health community together to tell their stories to potential investors and prospective corporate and strategic partners.
