Oklahoma bioscience community gathers to recognize industry growth, leadersPublished: Monday, April 4, 2016 By: Scott Meacham Source: NewsOK
It's a rare moment that the leaders and scientists of Oklahoma's bioscience industry can come together to share the collaborative spirit that is such a part of who they are and what they are creating. The annual OKBIO Summit and BioScience Awards dinner is one of those moments.
I was struck by how there's virtually no stopping the conversation at this event — even while the OU-Texas A&M Sweet 16 game streamed during dinner to a big screen. (Bioscience and basketball are definitely compatible.)
The theme of the day was the impact of the convergence of biopharmaceutical research and clinical trials — in other words, creating clinical trials that further ground-breaking diagnostics and therapies that can change patients' lives.
