Renewing Your Membership

Top 5 Reasons to Renew During the Covid-19 Pandemic

In the world of science, connection is the key to discovery. It can be connecting with the right people, connecting funding at the right time, or a scientist connecting two unexpected things together for results that have never been seen before. Biocom is how the life science industry makes connections. We are how our members connect to community, capital and advocacy—and to new and better ways to work.

“We want to extend a sincere thank you to Biocom for inviting Scientist.com to be a part of their pavilion at BioJapan for a second straight year! Scientist.com enjoyed consistent traffic and secured a significant number of leads from our three days spent in the California Pavilion and participating in the partnering event at BioJapan. Being able to share the exhibiting costs among several San Diego companies all underneath the Biocom umbrella, made our participation possible and enabled further expansion for our company in the Japanese market.”
