Turning Innovation Into Enterprise


9th Annual WV Bioscience Summit April 25th – It Starts With One

It starts with one.  One idea, one researcher, one discovery, one entrepreneur is all it takes to make significant change that helps patients, spurs innovation and facilitates economic progress in West Virginia’s life science sector.

Taking place on April 25th in Morgantown, the 9th Annual West Virginia Bioscience Summit will highlight the “one’s” …the entrepreneurs, researchers and companies making significant contributions in our industry, both here in West Virginia and across the country.
