All Eyes on Victoria at AusBiotech 2016

The Hon Philip Dalidakis and BioMedVic CEO Jan Tennent greeting international delegates at AusBiotech 2016

We’ve been busy in the lead up to the AusBiotech 2016 International BioFest conference this month, ensuring our researchers from academia and industry receive the attention they deserve. BioMedVic assisted the Victorian Government with the state’s presence at the event which attracted an estimated 2,000 delegates.

BioMedVic organised and managed the roster of the Victorian industry and research participants at the Government’s BioIndustry Exhibition booth.

The Director of MedTech and Pharmaceuticals, DEDJTR, Andrew Wear, was thankful for the support:

“Thanks to @BioMedVic for doing such a great job coordinating activity at the @VicGovAu booth! #AusBio16 #BioFest16” he tweeted on October 26.

BioMedVic worked closely with the Victorian Government to promote the research capabilities of BioMedVic members, industry and the wider health and medical research community in the State to international investors and delegates.

As part of the Victorian Government’s international Visitor Invitation Program (VIP), BioMedVic delivered a Victorian Capabilities Showcase in the Bio21 auditorium. The five showcased priority areas were drug discovery & development; infectious diseases & immunology; medical technologies; neuroscience; oncology and regenerative medicine. BioMedVic also organised and facilitated a session devoted to Victoria’s strength in Clinical Trials to the VIPs.

Delegates were impressed by Victorian research – set to grow and become even stronger in the years to come.
