Biotechnology in Owensboro

Owensboro, KY has been the center of attention in the plant made pharmaceutical world.  Kentucky BioProcessing and the Sullivan University College of Pharmacy recently hosted a Plant Made Pharmaceutical symposium in Louisville and Owensboro.  The conference attracted over 75 participants from around the world how work in this developing field.  Take a look at a few news stories from TV stations in the area.


From my own personal experience, I have enjoyed watching the Owensboro biotech community grow.  Over the past three years, I have watched as a group of dedicated individuals have worked together to build an industry that will help attract high tech jobs to Kentucky.  The folks at Greater Owensboro Economic Development Corporation have down a great job championing this industry, along with Kentucky BioProcessing, Owensboro Medical Health Systems, and a variety of other players.  Below is a little more information on what they do.  If you would like to see this in person, please contact me.  I am putting together a trip for August 6.
