BIO- IP Counsels Committee Conference
The BIO IPCC Conference is organized biannually by the IP Counsels Committee of the Biotechnology Innovation Organization. It is organized by in-house practitioners for in-house practitioners, and over the past decade has become the premiere event for corporate biotech patent counsels and agents, providing valuable opportunities for education, practice pointers, policy discussions, and for meeting similarly-situated colleagues in the industry. Registration policies and programming are designed to ensure that the event first and foremost benefits the in-house community.
We are continually seeking out ways to enhance its value to our core audience, especially practitioners at smaller companies whose budgets are tight and responsibilities are spread. BIO will waive registration and reimburse $500 in hotel and airline for up to 10 biotech in-house IP counsel first-time attendees. Recipients must have never attended a BIO IPCC Conference before.

Drug Development Boot Camp 2016
Date: November 16-17, 2016
Why is there a need for training in drug development? Drug development is a complex process. Each compound or molecule that enters drug development requires a unique drug development program to be devised by the Project Team. Even after many years of working in drug development, many drug developers with decision making authority lack in-depth understanding of the drug development process. It becomes harder and harder to gain this knowledge the longer one is in the drug development arena. Who wants to admit in front of colleagues that they don’t understand everything discussed in project team meetings.
The Drug Development Boot Camp was founded by Dr. Lorna Speid. She is a global regulatory affairs and drug development expert. After watching many of her clients make avoidable and expensive mistakes, she decided to help as many as she could avoid those mistakes. The Boot Camp uses accelerated learning techniques to train executives and people working at the cutting edge of new drug R&D, in drug development. The seventh Boot Camp will be held with Harvard University OTD at the Harvard Club on November 16-17, 2016.
Biolatam® is the biotechnology conference which provides unique access to Latin America, one of the fastest growing life science markets.
