Our Vice President of Corporate Affairs, Hana Marinkovic, recently joined Edmonton Global on their Economic Development Matters podcast to speak about the importance of the life sciences sector, and share some of the good work we’re doing for their inaugural forward/slash event!
“When we meet with others in the ecosystem, there is palpable excitement. You can feel energy and hope and inspiration for what the future has in store… we are looking forward to folks stepping away from these conversations recognizing the tremendous research, innovation and scale-up opportunities that we have within the health and life sciences sector in the region, and what that can look like for us going forward… there’s so much good work being done right now and so much more to come.”
