DiscoveryBioMed, Inc. (DBM) is honored and excited to be involved in the BIO Alabama Annual Conference to be held virtually from October 5-8. There are some great keynote speakers and sessions as well as a one-on-one partnering vehicle that DBM is co-sponsoring for the event. “At the BIO International Convention, DBM takes full advantage of the One on One Partnering vehicle to connect to future potential partners and clients,” explained Dr. Erik Schwiebert, CEO and CSO of DBM. “We encouraged a similar vehicle, given the virtual format for the meeting, where connections can be made and/or deepened across the BIO Alabama network and ecosystem.”
In addition, Erik is joining Rachel Lane that leads a scientific writing enterprise called The Written Science for a fireside chat on small business grant programs at the NIH and NSF for life sciences and biotechnology companies. Erik is also going to connect virtually to the Auburn Engineering Club one evening that week to discuss the life sciences and biotechnology career path, DBM, and other topics of interest to Auburn undergraduates. He is also a part of the BIO Alabama Executive Committee and the Planning Committee for this conference.
“Sonia Robinson in particular and the BIO Alabama leadership in general has brought significant new and important energy for our State affiliate and has started many important conversations, including the potential for SBIR-STTR award supplements, to new awardees in the State of Alabama. We need to continue this important momentum for the rest of 2020 and carry it into 2021.”
