BIO Volunteers

Along with BIO Staff, volunteers are essential to the success of the convention. Thank you to the many onsite volunteers who donated their time and energy to the success of the 2008 BIO International Convention, without you we could not make the Global Event for Biotechnology.

The onsite volunteers are wearing sky blue shirts at the event. Please extend a thank you when you see them.
Special thanks to the Volunteer Recognition Sponsor, Invitrogen Corporation.
