OU intern does triple duty at 2016 biotechnology conventionPublished: Wednesday, June 8, 2016 By: Jim Stafford Source: NewsOK
For University of Oklahoma graduate student Amanda Curtis, the 2016 Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) show required some unique multi-tasking skills.
Curtis greeted visitors to the Oklahoma exhibition booth. She participated in Oklahoma Bioscience networking events. And she sat in on multiple partnering meetings with her colleagues from OU's Office of Technology Development.
All in a day's work.
“Since I'm an intern with them, one of my duties is to pitch OU's research to potential partners,” Curtis said on Wednesday morning. “So I'm currently pitching some cancer therapies that OU is working on. I had two meetings yesterday, and I have three meetings today.”
