Malow will mesh acclaimed wit, humor, and science at Tech Collective’s Rhode Island Bioscience Awards celebration.

PRLog - Feb. 18, 2013 - PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Providence, R.I. – February 11, 2013 – “Earth’s Premier Science Comedian (self-proclaimed),” Brian Malow (http://www.sciencecomedian.com/), will open Tech Collective’s Rhode Island Bioscience Awards celebration event on Thursday, May 2, 2013 from 5:30 – 7:30 pm at Rhodes on the Pawtuxet in Cranston.

Malow’s combination of wit, humor, and science – ranging from space to atoms, from pop-culture to the truly genius – has won acclaim from NASA, the National Association of Science Writers, Apple, Time Magazine, and many more. His current work includes science communications at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences (http://naturalsciences.org/nature-research-center/brian-malow), Scientific American’s “But Seriously…” (http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/but-seriously/2013/01/28/please-allow-me-to-introduce-myself/) blog, and appearances on the Weather Channel, through which he will appear in its “Hacking the Planet (http://press.weather.com/press-releases/hacking-the-plane...)” series premiering later this month.

At the Rhode Island Bioscience Awards, Malow’s audience will be innovators and culture changers working across the state’s medical device, research and development, pharmaceutical, and additionally related bioscience sectors.

“What a perfect event for my first-ever performance in Rhode Island!” said Malow. “I look forward to meeting, learning more about, and, of course, laughing with, Rhode Island’s bioscience professionals. Thank you for letting me be a part of your awards celebration!”

“The Rhode Island Bioscience Awards ceremony is a celebration of our industry’s accomplishments  – what better way to do so than to amp up the energy in the room and have everyone laughing?” said Melissa Punchak, manager of organizational programs for Tech Collective. “We are extremely excited to welcome Brian to Rhode Island for his first time and to introduce him to our state’s top bioscience leaders and professionals!”

The first of its kind in Rhode Island, this industry-specific awards program is designed to honor individuals working within the state’s bioscience sectors. Professionals working in medical device, research and development, pharmaceuticals, laboratories, production, design, and related areas are encouraged to participate.

Award winners will be announced in mid-February. For more information, or to attend the Rhode Island Bioscience Awards celebration event, visit www.tech-collective.org.
