Posted by Jim H on October 25, 2013

The day before Halloween, next Wednesday, is the next Biobeers.  Do you have your costume ready?!

The Halloween venue is at ImQuest (7340 Executive Way Suite R 21704) on Wednesday, October 30th from 4:30 until 7:30 PM.  I keep repeating thisTSC5 people keep asking.  I thought most scientists could read!  This is going to be a costume party. Costumes are not mandatory, but encouraged. The ImQuest guys always go in all out, I expect nothing different this year.raland-technologies

THANK YOU to our sponsors!  Raland Technologies  and TechSales Consultants .  I worked on contract at MedImmune with Raland.  Raland Technologies provides regulatory compliance consulting to pharma and biotech clients and performs audits of clinical research for Academic Research Organizations and commercial sponsors.  They also provide full-service training development and technical writing services, and foreign language translation and interpretation.  Raland also launched their own Biobeers chapter, the Roc City Biobeers group in my hometown Rochester, NY.

TechSales Consultants offers technical sales training and sales consulting services for life sciences, medical devices, and biotechnology.

There’s also a rumor that LifeTech is “passing the hat” for contributions.

I am wearing this same hat today! This is me playing guitar at Google in 2008. It’s kinda like a costume.

Are you ready for some BioBeers? I find it hard to believe that it’s Halloween again already!

The next BioBeers is happening at ImQuest (7340 Executive Way Suite R 21704) on Wednesday, October 30th from 4:30 until 7:30 PM.  As usual, this is going to be a costume party. Costumes are not mandatory, but encouraged. The ImQuest guys always go in all out, I expect nothing different this year.

We need a couple sponsors!  Someone aside from me is buying our food and beverages this time.  If you’re interested and able email me fredcobio@gmail.com or leave a message somewhere like MeetUp or LinkedIn  BioBeers logo

As usual, it’s best to RSVP via MeetUp, by leaving a reply here or sending me an email to fredcobio@gmail.com . We can talk about what costumes we’re wearing because it will be awkward if we both wear the same thing.
