Ann Arbor, Mich. –  MichBio will host a Biosciences industry BioMixer on September 5 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Continental Firehouse in Houghton, MI.


The casual bioscience networking event will provide opportunities for bioscience organizations in the Houghton area and the Upper Peninsula to meet and discuss the industry. It will feature food and drink provided by the Continental Firehouse.


“These types of events help to advance the industry through connectedness,” says Stephen Rapundalo, President and CEO of MichBio, “it’s far easier to reach out to an organization for resources or expertise if you’ve made a personal connection with someone there.”


He continued, “Networks built at these types of events have helped facilitate new products being brought to market, the exchange ideas between organizations, and funding through investments or grants. The casual environment breaks down barriers and collaboration is a natural outcome – that’s the kind of industry growth we drive at MichBio.”


The BioMixer is sponsored by VWR International which offers single-source access to the most respected brands in scientific equipment, instruments, supplies, furniture and chemicals, as well as exclusive products offered as part of the VWR collection.


The event is free and open to all Bioscience industry professionals, but registration is required at
