Progress Report: Beyond Hospitals

In Focus: BioDistrict New Orleans

We have jump-started 2011 with some very significant events. On January 14th, we kicked off the year with the BioTech II Summit and Luncheon at the Westin Hotel. This daylong meeting provided an update on the work begun by the New Orleans Regional Biosciences Initiative in 2007. Highlights of the summit included remarks from Senator Karen Carter-Peterson and Dr. James Richardson, as well as discussions on the BioDistrict’s Master Planning activities.

There’s much to look forward to in 2011 including; the groundbreaking of the University Medical Center, the grand openings of the BioInnovation Center and the International Soft Landing Center in April, and the Louisiana Cancer Research Center in September. Our City will also be hosting the Association of University Research Parks’ 25th International Convention from November 30th through December 2nd.

With your support and participation we will continue to work toward the development of a world-class bioscience industry in New Orleans. I look forward to sharing many more successes with you through the course of this year, and please don’t hesitate to contact me with your suggestions or questions.
