Russian Biopharma Conference Features VABIO

VABIO Executive Director Mark Herzog promoted the Virginia bioscience community in a presentation at the 2nd International Forum on Innovative Drug R&D in Russia, last month in Moscow. The conference featured industry leaders from across the Russian Federation as well as scores of international pharmaceutical company representatives.

"My presentation was focused on the dynamic companies we have in Virginia and the policies we have advanced in the last couple years encouraging technology transfer, entrepreneurship and access to capital for start-ups," said Mr. Herzog. "Most of the attendees that sought me out following the presentation were intrigued by the opportunities for partnerships and strategic alliances."

The conference, held at the Renaissance Monarch Centre Hotel in Moscow, November 21 and 22, was organized by London-based Adam Smith Conferences, attracted more than 300 attendees from numerous European countries as well as the United States. The Mid-Atlantic- Russia Business Council was instrumental in organizing the participation by VABIO.
