Today’s Keynote Luncheon features Sir Richard Branson, Founder of the Virgin Group, one of the world’s most recognized and respected brands. “The BIO International Convention brings together an industry that is working to solve some of our world’s most intractable problems,” said Sir Richard. “Every day, biotechnology companies are seeking cures for devastating diseases, finding new ways to feed a growing global population and developing renewable fuels to keep our air and water clean for future generations. I could not be more excited to participate in the 2014 BIO International Convention in San Diego and meet the people behind this incredibly innovative and important industry.” The Keynote Luncheon is sponsored by Janssen and is open to Convention Access and higher attendees. Seating is limited.
