In 2020 we introduced a new series titled “5 Questions With…” in an effort to spotlight individuals from across the BioHealth Capital Region and beyond. Providing this platform has allowed us to help share the stories of industry peers and show that there isn’t a single “right” way to becoming an industry success.
Today, we are excited to announce the winners of our inaugural BioBuzz Awards. The BioBuzz Awards are a celebration of the exciting and groundbreaking work being done by the BioHealth Capital Region (BHCR) life science community and the individuals that make innovation happen across Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C.
This year, more than ever before, we’ve seen just how important it is for us all to stay connected and work together to build a stronger biotech ecosystem. In the face of great adversity, the biotech community has risen to the challenge and formed new collaborations and partnerships to innovate and rapidly develop new medicines and tools to help us beat this pandemic.
Top Biopharma Talent Acquisition Experts Share Strategies for Hiring and Retaining Employees in 2020
The biotech industry continues to grow rapidly across the nation, especially in the BHCR. The region’s strategy for hiring and retaining employees is a key driver of the BHCR’s steady, sustained growth.
The Sixth Annual BioHealth Capital Region Forum brought together industry leaders from across the region who discussed the accomplishments and strengths of the region as its member companies continue to innovate new therapies and medicines in one of the strongest bio-hub regions in the United States.
This invitation-only event is free for executive level biotech leaders and is presented by the Association of University Research Parks, AstraZeneca, BioHealth Innovation, Children’s National Health System, Emergent BioSolutions, George Mason University, J.P. Morgan, Johns Hopkins University, Maryland Department of Commerce, Virginia Bio, and Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, P.C.
Perhaps the single biggest challenge faced by startup entrepreneurs and early-stage life science companies is securing the necessary funding to fuel innovation and growth. The BioHealth Capital Region (BHCR) life science community as a whole faces a similar challenge when it comes to access to venture capital funding; this challenge has been noted by many BHCR thought leaders and well-documented in a host of BioBuzz stories.
