GBC seeks nominations for 2011 Bioscience Awards

The sixth annual awards, which recognize outstanding achievement in Maryland’s growing bioscience industry, will be presented on March 29 at the University of Maryland, Baltimore Bio Park.

“Maryland’s bioscience industry growth is accelerating,” said GBC president and CEO Donald C. Fry. “These annual awards celebrate the innovative work of the researchers, entrepreneurs, and visionaries who are driving Maryland’s progress as a major bioscience research and industry center.”

The four award categories are: Outstanding Entrepreneur, Best New Product or Progress, Leadership in Bioscience, and President’s Award. Judges for the awards are prominent bioscience entrepreneurs and industry experts.

Nominators will be asked to submit documentation and narratives that fulfill several criteria and then to add other supporting evidence as deemed suitable. Self-nominations are accepted and encouraged.

The deadline for nominations is March 4. Nomination criteria and forms and information about the awards event can be found on the GBC’s web site.
