Letter from the President

Dear friends, 

Just a few weeks ago our community celebrated a remarkable achievement by a member company, as Prelude Therapeutics conducted a successful IPO. 

This rare milestone is significant for many reasons – so very few start-ups ever get to this stage – but most notably because the capital it raised will accelerate Prelude’s mission of developing innovative therapies for hard-to-treat cancers. That’s great news for patients and their families. 

Prelude’s IPO also demonstrates the value of Delaware’s close-knit bioscience industry and shines a bright global light on home-grown innovation happening across the state.  Please check out my article in the Delaware Business Times (right here) where I make the case that we have a special opportunity to build on this exciting momentum. 

That begins with fortifying the assets and resources that help small companies with great ideas flourish. One of the many tools Delaware Bio provides is our BIO Business Solutions discount buying program. Today’s newsletter mentions several of the products and services available to our members at prices that can’t be found anywhere else. These savings can help growing companies put money into research and people and other investments – I encourage all our members to take advantage of the program. 

Many companies can also qualify for NIH grants and we are hosting a webinar next Thursday October 29 where NIH staff will provide details on how best to engage with the agency. I hope you will also attend this Friday’s event featuring US Representative Lisa Blunt Rochester and three senior female AstraZeneca executives who will discuss how they are navigating the challenges of leading during this time of virtual working for so many. Click here to register. 

Lastly – a shout out to all our new members: welcome to Delaware Bio, we’re delighted to have you on board! 

See you soon- 

Regards, 

Michael Fleming
