SAN DIEGO -- The Wisconsin pavilion at the 2008 BIO international convention opened with a burst of activity Wednesday as presentations began in the Wisconsin BioTheater, a small amphitheater built into the 80-foot-long pavilion. Presenters in the morning were EraGen Biosciences Inc. (Miguel Blanc, vice president of corporate development); Planet LLC (Thomas Crabb, president); and Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (Laura Heisler, program developer of the Morgridge Institute for Research at The Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery).
Wisconsin's pavilion is located in a good neighborhood, by convention floor standards. Pennsylvania, Italy, North Carolina, Georgia and special exhibits on therapeutic drug discoveries are within a stone's throw. Most popular giveaway items in the Wisconsin exhibit? Bucky Badger lapel pins and chocolate chip cookies.
