Albert Di Rienzo to attend the 8th Annual New York State Biotechnology Symposium as both Chief Innovation Officer and Executive Vice President of Research & Development at Voyce as well as President & CEO of Radicle Innovation

With New York State becoming ever more aggressive in attracting and retaining businesses, especially in the Biotechnology sector via Start-up NY, which partners academic institutions with industry, the State has become a formidable competitor, attracting companies, spinouts, venture capital, and talent.  In fact, New York State ranks second among States with adults who have four or more years of college, and second among States for the highest number of scientists and engineers.  Furthermore, New York State continues to be exceptionally strong in academic research, development, and innovation, ranking second in the Nation in academic research and expenditures, with expenditures being almost evenly split between Upstate and Downstate academic institutions.

To keep apprised of the latest developments, Di Rienzo will be participating in the 8th Annual New York State Biotechnology Symposium, being hosted by the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) – in partnership with the Research Foundation for the State of New York.  The Symposium will be held on the 19th and 20th of May on SUNY ESF’s campus, which is located in Syracuse, NY, highlighting and raising awareness of the SUNY Networks of Excellence.  According to the Symposium’s website, their mission is “to bring together industry representatives and scientists, academics and students, and other professionals interested in biotechnology in order to develop synergies and relationships that further advance the field.”  Post Symposium, Di Rienzo will report highlights to i4C Innovations, and key collaborators.
