Laboratory Design recently published a commentary, "Teaming for Success," by RS&H’s Vice President and Health & Science Practice Leader, Michael Vascellaro on the importance of collaboration within the biotech industry. Mr. Vascellaro participated on a panel during BioFlorida’s 2014 Conference in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
“Often adversity is the best catalyst for change—forcing one to adapt to new conditions," Mr. Vascellaro said. "And perhaps it’s the economic adversity of late that has spawned change in the biopharmaceutical industry, forcing members to take cooperative action for the betterment of a common goal.”
Mr. Vascellero, along with several high-profile biotech firms, including GE, were part of a public-private partnership team assisting in the launch of the Gainesville-based Nanotherapeutics Advanced Development and Manufacturing Center.
