Next week, we will be introducing you to BIO’s Official Bloggers, writers who are on top of the biotechnology beat, and will be covering BIO2015 on BIOtechNOW and their own blogs.  Until then, here’s a snapshot of what you’ll be seeing more of over the next two weeks:

Bloomberg BNA’s Health Care Blog

John T. Aquino reports on a media conference call with BIO’s President and CEO Jim Greenwood and Scott Whitaker, BIO’s COO and President of the Convention, who discussed issues ranging from patents to the 21st Century Cures to what to expect in Philadelphia.  Check out John’s story here.

In its blog, Research!America highlighted a session titled “International Perspectives on Combating Antimicrobial Resistance” on June 17, featuring John Watson, the Deputy Chief Medical Officer for England, and Dávila Chávez, Director-General of International Affairs of Mexico’s Secretariat of Health.  Check out their post, The Race to Contain Superbugs.
