We were talking just the other day about the super star credentials of next month’s BIO International Convention.

And the flagship international event for the biotech industry, organised by the Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO), confirmed actor and director Rob Reiner will be delivering a keynote at the event in Boston.

Jim Greenwood, President and Chief Executive Officer of BIO, said: “Rob is an advocate for those living with substance abuse disorders and addiction. His poignant story of helping his son overcome his battle with drug addiction will inspire attendees and our industry in its quest to discover next generation, non-addictive pain therapies. I look forward to our discussion.”

The 2018 BIO International Convention takes place from 4 to 7 June.

A few weeks later the World Congress on Industrial Biotechnology will be held in Philadelphia – from 16 to 19 July. Innovators Magazine is a media partner with this one.
