BPC 2nd Annual Vendor Fair
By Lucas Smith
On July 24th, the BPC hosted our 2nd Annual Vendor Fair and Technology Seminar. With 20 local and national vendors it was an opportunity for our postdocs to see the latest innovations in biological research products. The vendor fair fund-raising initiative by BPC was profiled this year in The Daily Pennsylvanian as well as the ScienceCareers Blog, and the event generated almost $8,000 for the BPC to fund events throughout the year. Vendors came away saying it was their best event of the year, as they were able to target the postdocs who use and choose so many of their products. Many even expressed interest joining us for another show this winter! If you want to be involved in helping the BPC host another successful event please contact fundraising committee chair Lucas Smith [ smithlu-at-dental.upenn.edu ]. We look forward to making more vendor shows accessible to postdocs as well as helping to fund our other events.
