Momentum of the BIO Big Dance Continues to Build

March 28, 2014
Can I assume you have all been missing my NCAA tournament musings? Well maybe not, but just in case you've been waiting for more, here you go.....

What an exciting and eventful tournament it has been so far. But it's far from over. Last night we had some great battles. Sadly, my adopted team, San Diego State University lost a tough game to Arizona.  And since I feel like San Diego is my second home this year, I was bummed to see them lose. But the tourney isn't over yet and all hope isn't lost, my bracket still has a few teams remaining.

Tonight we have some epic battles. None of which is greater than the Battle of the Bluegrass.  It is the kind of game that divides families and provides bragging rights for years to come.  You see, tonight my Kentucky Wildcats will take on their bitter, cross-state (well, 70 miles to be exact) rivals, the Louisville Cardinals. The two teams have already met once this year with Kentucky emerging as the victors, 73-66.  My prediction is at the end of this post.

But as anxiously as I await tonight's tip-off, I am just as eagerly awaiting the tip-off of #BIO2014. With less than three months to go, our event preparation has kicked it up a notch.

From the recently announced partnership with NIH and NSF on the inaugural Innovation Zone to the open of BIO’s One-on-One Partnering™ system next week, the energy of the Convention continues to build (much like the energy of the tournament). And we aren’t done yet. We still have many more exciting partnerships, speakers and news to announce. So while the end of the tournament might be quickly approaching, don’t fret, the BIO International Convention is just heating up.

As for tonight? I always bet on blue.  Go Cats!
