Ohio Bioscience Expo & Showcase Recap

The 2018 Ohio Bioscience Expo & Showcase was a huge success!  With over 450 people registered, the Expo was the buzz of the entire bioscience community. We were fortunate to have attendees ranging from power players and CEOs, scientists, and developers, to graduate researchers, entrepreneurs, and two STEM high school groups that will be the future of the industry. With any undertaking of this magnitude, it could not have been realized without the efforts of our 45+ sponsor and exhibitor companies and their dedicated teams. Thank you for a fantastic event! We look forward to an even more amazing Expo in 2019!
