Date:2/12/2008

CLAREMONT, Calif., Feb. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Keck Graduate Institute (KGI) today announced that James Greenwood, president and CEO of the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO), will discuss "The American Health Care System & the Presidential Race: Who Will Regulate, Who Will Innovate?" at the 7th Annual Simon Ramo Distinguished Lecture Series on Wednesday, March 26, 2008, at 4 pm.

"We are thoroughly delighted that Jim Greenwood will serve as our guest speaker at this year's event," said Sheldon Schuster, Ph.D., KGI's president. "Health care reform is one of the most pressing issues facing our country. How it is addressed will affect all of us. The Simon Ramo Lecture is an example of KGI's commitment to provide important insights into the world of biotechnology and health care. Because KGI combines science and business to educate tomorrow's leaders in the life sciences, it is critical that we understand how federal policy may affect both. Jim's leadership at BIO and his experience with health care legislation on Capitol Hill give him a unique view of the reform process and the platforms of each candidate."

Greenwood joined BIO in January 2005 after representing Pennsylvania's Eighth District in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1993 to 2005. A senior member of the Energy and Commerce Committee, he was widely viewed as a leader on health care and the environment. Before joining Congress, Greenwood served six years in the Pennsylvania General Assembly (1980-86) and six years in the Pennsylvania Senate (1986-1993).

BIO represents more than 1,150 biotechnology companies, academic institutions, state biotechnology centers and related organizations across the United States and in more than 30 other nations. BIO members are involved in the research and development of innovative healthcare, agricultural, industrial and environmental biotechnology technologies. BIO also produces the annual BIO International Convention, the world's largest ga
