Bio: David Welch
David Welch has written, directed, and produced more than two hundred films, videos, and commercials, with dozens of his pieces devoted exclusively to biotechnology, science, and chemistry. His broadcast-quality presentations cover all three sectors of biotechnology and have focused on a wide range of topics. These topics include immunotherapies, Alzheimer’s, MS, various cancers, cellulosic ethanol and biofuels, malaria, transgenic seeding and genetically enhanced farming methods, gene silencing, and animal viruses.
Several of Mr. Welch’s videos, such as ‘Biotechnology: Knowledge Serving Life,’ and ‘Biotechnology…Amazing Today, Astonishing Tomorrow,” have won First Place honors in major national film contests. In addition to accurately depicting science on the screen he also brings a consistently fresh look to the human side of the science, including the real-life stories of patients, research specialists, and business executives. Jim Greenwood, CEO of the Biotechnology Industry Organization, calls David Welch “one of the best in the business when it comes to telling biotech’s story.”
