What do I do?

Currently, I am completing graduate work at CU Boulder reproductive neuroendocrinology lab in the Integrative Physiology department. I have spent the last several years studying the neurotrophic effects of fibroblast growth factors on the fate specification, migration, and post-natal maintenance of GnRH neurons. I am also teaching human anatomy lab sections at CU and working on the Front Range Neuroscience Group meeting which will take place in December 2008. My passion lies in the communication of science through the marketing of ideas and the pedagogical dissemination of information. I am attracted to science application and biomedical technologies, and am drawn to social interactions and people. In December I will be graduating and am excited for the adventures that the future will bring!

Why do I spend my valuable time at BioBeers?

I am dedicated to people and science and am energized by bringing the two together under one roof – especially with a beer in hand! Coming from the research bench, I feel that there is a need for translational communication between the business and clinical/research worlds. BioBeers brings together people from all bioscience related fields who share a common interest in science for the purpose of exchanging ideas and information. With Colorado beginning to make its debut in the world of Biotechnology and bio-based businesses, BioBeers is offering a unique opportunity for people to be on the cutting edge of this growth through facilitating business and interpersonal connections.

My vision of the Colorado life science landscape 2008-2018

I have seen Colorado undergo significant changes in the past ten years. With its fresh and vivacious energy, Colorado is a burgeoning post hold for new ideas, technologies, and bio-science industries. In the next decade, I project Colorado defining itself through the continued expansion of biomedical, biotechnological, and green industries. According to the Colorado Bioscience Association, there are currently 380 bioscience companies in Colorado, a number that is seeding the ground for industry growth and possibility. Now is an optimal time to get acquainted with the people and companies that will shape Colorado’s biotech landscape in the future.

Say Cheese!

Next Meeting: November 13th 8:30pm (gates open at 7:00pm)

2008 has been a fantastic year for BioBeers. Business partnerships, scientific collaborations, hirings and importantly…friendships continue to be forged at these informal gatherings. The October event welcomed over 75 attendees. The BioBeers community experienced a wonderful growth trajectory in our first year of business and continues to play ever expanding host to a diverse array of Colorado bioscience industry professionals representing functions such as practicing physicians and medical officers, Ph.D. scientists, entrepreneurs, angel investors, executive leaders, biomedical engineers, business development, commercialization, manufacturing, quality, regulatory, legal and finance experts; not to mention growing interest and representation from MS, MD, PhD and MBA students (and undergrads, who are of legal drinking age, of course). Whether you are a scientist looking to commercialize a breakthrough medical discovery, a student or young professional looking to build a career in the local bioscience community, a bioentrepreneur or executive looking to recruit Colorado talent, or you just like beer and good conversation please come join us at the next BioBeers!

For the November event BioBeers continues its support of the Colorado Bioscience Association's 2008 BioWest Conference and Expo. Be sure to register (here) for this fantastic event featuring top-tier speakers such as Steven Burrill and Guy Kawasaki, the Venture Showcase competition, hear unique bioscience industry perspectives from Medtronic, Covidien and Ernst & Young and don’t forget Colorado’s biggest bioscience job fair, all just to name a few of the exciting events stuffed into an action packed two days.

If you are looking for a great forum to decompress following the BioWest Conference awards dinner with keynote address delivered by Colorado’s Governor Ritter, look no further than Harry's and BioBeers to connect with bioscience colleagues in a casual environment, and only two blocks from the Hyatt and BioWest conference.

We are starting the November event a bit later than normal, you are welcome to arrive at 7:00pm though we imagine an influx of attendees following the awards dinner ending at 8:30pm.

When: Thursday 13 November kickoff is 8:30pm (gates open at 7:00pm)
Where: Harry's Bar 818 17th Street Denver 80202 (only two blocks from the Hyatt and BioWest conference)
