Hundreds of health, science and business experts are expected to attend a national small business conference in Sioux Falls next week.
The National Institutes of Health Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technical Transfer Conference will be held Oct. 28-30 at the Sioux Falls Convention Center.
Speakers are scheduled from across the country. Dr. Alan Young of Medgene Labs is among more than 50 research and business leaders who are scheduled to speak. Young is the chief scientific officer of South Dakota-based Medgene Labs, a company started in 2011 to assist in the translation of early stage animal and human health technologies to the marketplace, such as new vaccines and diagnostic tools.
Gary Archamboult, SBIR program director in South Dakota, is one of the primary organizers of the conference, which will be held in Sioux Falls for the first time.
“We thought it was a great opportunity to kick off the USD Research Park in Sioux Falls,” Archamboult said.
The emerging research park is located on the University Center campus in northwest Sioux Falls.
Now that the government is back up and running, the National Institutes of Health Program managers will be attending.
