The winner of our $500 cash giveaway, Brandon Steelman.

BioSurplus is proud to have been a Gold Sponsor of this year’s CALBIO conference.  The two-day event, held in San Francisco on March 8th and 9th, brought together members of the biotech industry and disease foundations to talk about pressing issues such as patient access, risk and reform at the FDA, and new business models.

We’re also excited to announce the winner of our $500 cash giveaway, Brandon Steelman.  Brandon is currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at Stanford, where he is working on a genetic diagnosis for breast cancer as well as making early detection more affordable.  Congratulations Brandon!  We wish you much luck in your efforts in support of a very worthy cause.

We’d also like to thank Michael Alvarez, chairman of the BayBio Institute and a director at the Stanford School of Medicine.  He kindly delivered the prize to Brandon, who had left the conference and was already back in the lab, hard at work.
