GEN Presents Contract Services Summit and Drug Discovery Theater at BIO

New Rochelle, NY, June 20, 2011-Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News (GEN) will host a Contract Services Summit and Drug Discovery Theater at the Annual BIO International conference in Washington, DC, later this month.

Rising costs, new regulatory requirements, growing global competition, and the quickening pace of technology innovation are increasing the pressure on biotech companies to develop more focused product-development strategies-all the way from drug discovery through commercial manufacturing. Join us to listen to and discuss current trends and business challenges for drug discovery, clinical trials, and contract research and contract manufacturing operations.

The GEN Contract Services Summit will take place on Tuesday, June 28, from 2:15 pm until 5:00 pm at the GEN Theater (Booth #4243) on the BIO Exhibition Floor. Click on the following link for program details: GEN Contract Services Summit
