From the President

Dear all,

We were honored to be joined by Governor John Carney at last week’s BioBreakfast – an event that showcased the extraordinary innovation underway across the Delaware bioscience community focused on combatting the COVID-19 pandemic. More than 150 joined virtually to hear from several members on cutting edge research and product development happening every day in our state. 

 It was great to hear the governor affirm the immense value of our industry, both from a public health and economic standpoint.  That fact is underlined by other recent news included in today’s newsletter – including the continued growth of Prelude Therapeutics and the novel CRISPR in a Box kit launched by ChristianaCare’s Gene Editing Institute and Delaware Tech, to name just two inspiring stories. 

 The momentum of the Delaware bioscience community is exciting, but we need to make smart decisions and investment as a state to ensure it continues to build.  To that point, we are pleased to be co-hosting an update on the need for ready-to-go lab space on October 7 (you can register here). I urge you to join us for an important briefing on potential funding opportunities for companies in need of expanded facilities. 

 Of course, this home-grown bioscience innovation drives economic opportunity well beyond just the “core” bioscience industry; as R&D-driven investment increases in Delaware many other businesses and sectors benefit. Our outstanding associate member companies range from accounting and law firms to industrial service providers that all help make bioscience innovation possible. We thank and recognize them for their essential support and partnership. 

 Lastly, I’m delighted to welcome our newest members, Groff North America and Scientific Bioprocessing Inc. (SBI).  I encourage all of you who appreciate the value of Delaware Bio to please always be thinking about potential new organizations you’d like to introduce to our special community. 

Sincerely,

Michael Fleming
