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.
