BioSpace has produced Genetown since 1995 with Massachusetts Biotechnology Council (MBC) as a major supporter of the campaign throughout the duration. Sponsored this year by Novartis Biomedical Research Center, Wyeth BioPharma and Biogen Idec, Genetown 2005 highlights 50 life science organizations including Antigenics, Genzyme, Idenix Pharmaceuticals and Pfizer. Other companies participating in the campaign include products and service provider PerkinElmer and scientific recruitment firm SRG Woolf Group. Research institutes, non-profit organizations and universities within Massachusetts also participated.
"We have seen the life sciences continue to flourish in Massachusetts over the past decade. This is readily evident by looking at the expanded Genetown campaigns and online presence of the community on BioSpace.com over the years," said Brian Vacanti, Division Manager of BioSpace. "We are happy to be working with MBC once again and look forward to another 10 years of Genetown."
The campaign features a Genetown Hotbed Map, created by BioSpace's professional artist, which displays the corporate logos and facilities of participating organizations. The map is further enhanced through the integration of many functional components including a Genetown Hotbed Homepage, on BioSpace's industry leading Website, BioSpace.com.
