Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 7th annual Bio-IT World Conference & Expo
Enabling Technology. Leveraging Data. Transforming Medicine.
April 27-29, 2009, World Trade Center, Boston, MA

Since its debut in 2002, the annual Bio-IT World Conference & Expo has
established itself as the premier event showcasing the myriad applications
of IT and informatics to biomedical research and the drug discovery
enterprise.  The Expo is the perfect place to share ideas and innovation
through networking, education, and recognition.

Networking
The Expo provides you the opportunity to make connections and build
alliances with peers, prospects, and thought leaders.  The Expo attracts a
highly influential audience consisting of senior level scientists, IT
professionals and Executives from organizations across the life sciences
industry including Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology, Health Systems, Academia,
Government and National Laboratories. Over 1,500 delegates representing 23
countries gather to share information and discuss enabling technologies
that are driving the drug discovery process.

Education
The Expo provides over 140 technology and scientific presentations. The
program features six parallel tracks in the areas of: IT Infrastructure,
Genomic Medicine, Predictive and in silico Science, Computational
Chemistry, Clinical and Medical Informatics, and Health IT.

Keynote presentations will be featured by Chris Dagdigian, Founding Partner
and Director of Technology, BioTeam, Inc.; Clifford Reid, Ph.D., Chief
Executive Officer, Complete Genomics, Inc.; and Eric E. Schadt, Ph.D.,
Executive Scientific Director, Genetics, Rosetta Inpharmatics/Merck

Attendees can view novel technologies and solutions from 75+ companies in
the expansive exhibit hall.  Additionally, Cambridge Healthtech Institute
and Bio-IT World recognize and celebrate leaders in innovation through its
“Best of Show Award”, “Best Practices Award”, and “Benjamin Franklin Award”
Programs.  The Expo is honored to provide a forum to showcase the
industry's talent and imagination.

The Bio-IT World Conference & Expo is the pulse of the industry.  Every
year, the Event is organically produced.  Contributions from the life
sciences community, Bio-IT World Magazine, and trend insights help
