Today, we are excited to announce the winners of our 2nd Annual 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.
We’re excited to announce this year’s finalists for the second annual 2021 BioBuzz Awards. These awards celebrate the people and companies across our regional community and their efforts and accomplishments to impact human health and build a stronger biotech community.
The growing life sciences ecosystem in Maryland has become a shining star in the BioHealth Capital Region. The region has seen explosive growth driven by billions of federal dollars aimed at R&D efforts to combat the COVID-19 threat. And that continued growth has become a magnet for a robust supply of life sciences talent that will continue to shape the future of the state and region.
Milken Institute Report Highlights How Maryland is Growing one of the Nation’s Strongest Life Science Ecosystems
Home to an array of renowned universities, federal labs, and government resources, it’s no surprise that the globally renowned Milken Institute found that Maryland “has one of the nation’s strongest life sciences industries,” according to its recent report.
It’s clear that Maryland’s efforts to grow its recognition as a life sciences/biotech hub have paid off. However, there is still more work to be done in order for Maryland’s R&D growth trajectory to keep up with other leading hubs such as Massachusetts and North Carolina.
A new independent study finds that Maryland has built “one of the nation’s strongest life sciences industries” that directly employs more than 54,000 workers in the state. The report from the globally recognized Milken Institute also identifies new opportunities for the public and private sectors to enhance Maryland’s entrepreneurial ecosystem and to strengthen its workforce development strategies.
What’s up, everybody? My name’s Jake Greenwood and if you’re not aware, I have a weekly segment on LinkedIn called #WannaGoWednesday where I highlight upcoming Life Sciences Industry events in the BioHealth Capital Region and beyond. Very often I’m looking at BioBuzz to see what those upcoming events might be. Well, the good folks leading the community at BioBuzz have invited me to invade their platform and share the can’t miss events for the remainder of 2021.
This rigorous three day program is ideal for basic research and translational biology scientists who are looking for a balanced theoretical vs. hands-on introduction to gene editing iPSCs using CRISPR/Cas9. [….]
Johns Hopkins Technology Ventures (JHTV) has had a significant impact on the Maryland life sciences ecosystem since its founding in 2014, assisting with hundreds of licensed therapeutics in development and backing nearly 200 startups that have collectively nearly $3 billion in venture capital funding, 30% of which has remained in the state.
