In recognition of Arizona Bioscience Week, which is Sept. 18-24, the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce issued a statement celebrating many of the area's achievements in the field.
As an example, collaborations between local companies such as HonorHealth, TGen and Celgene are adding a more personalized approach to treating cancer. Companies such as Pinnacle Transplant Technologies and Visiongate are bringing new ideas to market, making Phoenix a strong standout as a bioscience hub.
Bioscience is a key industry for Phoenix Forward and many cities and chambers in the area. Jennifer Mellor, vice president of economic development at the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce, said she is proud to work with trailblazers on the Phoenix Forward Bioscience Leadership Council.
Phoenix Union Bioscience High School provides an innovative learning environment to build a strong talent pool for the bioscience industry.
"It is great to see that Arizona’s bioscience companies, organizations and educational institutions are not only thriving, but also being recognized for their world-class research, clinical-trial successes and cutting-edge treatments," Mellor said.
The Arizona Bioindustry Association (AZBio) is hosting many events for Arizona Bioscience Week with plenty of opportunities to learn something new. For more information about specific events, visit www.azbio.org.
