Fueling Arizona Bioscience
A recent update to Arizona's Bioscience Roadmap: Toward 2012 indicates that challenges and gaps still exist in commercializing Arizona's technology assets. They include; Commercialization tools, business mentoring, and creating capital. Various organizations are working together in an attempt to address these challenges.
BioAccel, an independent, Arizona not-for-profit organization, has now joined in this effort. The mission of BioAccel is to drive economic development through the commercialization of late-stage basic and applied research in the life sciences. Through its BioAccel Commercialization Programs, BioAccel promotes the formation of new business ventures in the life sciences, provides development assistance to those new business ventures, as well as drives economic development in the biosciences.
