Northern Arizona is a hub for some very exciting developments in the bioscience arena, but we haven't always been very well connected to the rest of Arizona's efforts. Northern Arizona University has really benefited from its link with AZBio -- helping us build important connections to small and medium-sized companies elsewhere in the state, and helping us bring attention to the innovative work of our university researchers.

Kudos to you and your team for putting on a successful event with the AZ BIO Expo! I wanted to tell you how informative the AZBio Expo was for us here at ACA, especially in the Workforce Division. The panel on “Challenges Facing our Bioindustry Today” was particularly helpful to me because it identified how we need to connect the bio-tech companies to the human capital available within the Local Workforce Areas throughout the State.
