University of Minnesota and Rochester Headline BIO Gathering

By Bob Nellis

University of Minnesota Vice President for Research Brian Herman greets the crowd and is about to make Rochester Mayor Adell Brede an honorary U of Mn alum.

International researchers, company executives and government leaders networked for three hours as part of the Minnesota reception, kicking off the weeklong BIO 2014 conference in San Diego this week. The close association among private and public entities in the state always seems to be of interest to people. Mayo Clinic, the University of Minnesota, the state's Department of Employment and Economic Development and Business Sweden were the sponsors of the event. Networking and connecting with people from Scandinavia to China is important when finding research partners and collaborators. Over 250 people now know more about what Minnesota has to offer.
