Apparently, I neglected to state our start time on Thursday is 4:30 PM,as I have had numerous inquiries.
Sponsors for this months event are Fluid Imaging Technologies and the Maryland Biotechnology Center. Here’s a preview of the FIT presentation:
FIT is coming down from Maine just for BioBeers. They’re technically not FredCoBio, but we’ll let them in since they’re paying for you to have free samples of Flying Dog Beer and a pint glass you can take home and because they’re doing work with some FredCoBio companies (or at least they hope to).
I am glad to have Chuck Montague from the Maryland Biotechnology Center bring us news and information about Maryland’s “One Stop Shop” for everything Biotech.
The response this month has been overwhelming and humbling. We’re certain to break the attendance record of 135 people.
If you haven’t RSVP’s, please shoot me an email or leave a comment here or on the LinkedIn group.

It’s been a busy couple of months and I apologize for not posting more frequently, but have to catch everyone up on a few things.
First, if you tired of reading this blog, you may want to check our Dr Robert House’s (one of the 25 CEO’s you need to know in 2009) blog over at DynPort vaccine: Drugs and Bugs An interesting quote in the most recent post talking about vaccine safety: ”Vaccines are literally the only class of pharmaceutical (using the broadest sense of the term) that is routinely administered to large numbers of healthy individuals”. I hope we can entice Dr House to attend BioBeers this month.
Oh, and speaking of BioBeers, I created a new LinkedIn group for those not young, hip and computer savvy enough to join the GoogleGroup. The next BioBeers is Thursday Sept 24th at the Flying Dog Brewery. Our gracious hosts at the Flying Dogs have again agreed to put up with us, even though they have the GonzoFest this weekend.
The response lately to the BioBeers event has been overwhelming! All kinds of offers to sponsor this and that. I wish I could get a few more people willing to present their research. For this event, we’re going to try having the presentations in the conference room adjoining the pub. This way, the people who would like to hear the presentations can enjoy them in a more intimate setting (probably fit 30-40 people in the conference room).
As in the past, please RSVP to me directly, or by leaving a comment on this post, or via twitter, Tweetvite, LinkedIn group or the GoogleGroup.
I should be able to update everyone on who is sponsoring and speaking, soon. In the mean time, this video from SciFoo 2009 was published by Nature over the weekend. One of the stars of the show is my friend and DIYbio colleague and evangelist, Mac Cowell. Brought back many memories for me from SciFoo ’08
