Attending for Bioscience Americas were company CEO Eric Stoffers and President Bill Deegan. “We were pleased to have been invited to participate in the presentations. Interest in Bioscience Americas is very strong and we were successful in generating a lot of interest from potential investment partners, both from here in the United States and from Canada”, Mr. Stoffers noted.
Mr. Deegan added that along with Mr. Stoffers, they were able to establish relationships that will result in positioning Bioscience Americas to take advantage of significant funding opportunities. “These relationships will help us execute our business plan to bring life saving therapies from the lab to the marketplace. We’re excited about the future for Bioscience Americas and our capital partners”, Mr. Deegan concluded.
