HSSC Leads Delegation to BIO


In June 2011, HSSC led a team of South Carolinians to Washington, D.C., to represent the state’s growing biosciences industry and business-friendly environment at the BIO International Convention. BIO is the largest and most prominent gather of the biotech industry. During the four-day event, South Carolina’s delegation interacted with bioscience leaders from across the globe, including company executives, researchers, investors, and service providers. HSSC’s role in leading the delegation fit perfectly with the organization’s work to promote health sciences-related economic development within the state.

Other participating organizations included the South Carolina Department of Commerce, SC BIO, the SmartState Program, SCLaunch!, the Medical University of South Carolina, USC Innovista, Savannah River National Lab, Greenwood Partnership Alliance, Innovate Anderson, Upstate South Carolina Alliance, Immunologix, and NXT Health. The delegation sought to boost South Carolina’s profile within the biotech industry, establish and nurture relationships with industry leaders, and identify opportunities for the state such as attracting the expansion or relocation of biotech companies.
