This morning, the BDB hosted an active meeting of the Life Science Advisory Council, a group of dedicated stakeholders from across Palm Beach County’s vibrant Life Sciences Industry.  Attendees included senior representatives from across the bench to bedside cluster, including leaders from private industry, academic partners, Palm Beach County government, a first-in-class local healthcare institution, and the region’s world-class Max Planck and Scripps research institutes.  The purpose of the meeting is to solicit feedback implementation of the Life Sciences Industry Action Plan.  BDB’s Vice President of Life Sciences, Robert Mino, presented the seven strategic recommendations of the plan as well as providing a detailed update on the plan’s tactical implementation.

Key discussions were centered around BDB’s recent contact with investment funds, C-Suite executives, project companies, and a proposed life sciences incubator.  A representative from Scripps Florida also shared concurrently breaking news from Nature Index that The Scripps Research Institute is ranked as the top nonprofit scientific institute in United States.  The Life Science Advisory Council was very impressed with the overall progress of BDB initiatives and voted to increase the size of the council in order to continue our momentum by engaging even more industry participants.
