HGS CEO Cites Virginia as Success in Growing & Attracting Biotech

Tom Watkins, CEO of Human Genome Sciences and the chairman of the Maryland Life Sciences Advisory Board, commented recently on Maryland's economic development plan and competition from other states:

"We have to be realistic," he said, pointing out that it is a 10-year plan. "Other states, such as Virginia, are being aggressive in growing and attracting biotechnology companies. So we have to be forward-looking."
