2011 Florida Bio Tour
Florida’s Bio Tour was recommended by various research institutes headquartered in San Diego that had recently expanded in Florida. This unique city visit included a tour of Medical City at Lake Nona in Orlando whose key tenants include the Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute, UCF’s College of Medicine, Nemours Children’s Hospital, Orlando Veteran Affairs Medical Center, MD Anderson & UF research facilities.
Our trip also included meetings and tours at the Tradition Center for Innovation with Torrey Pines Institute for Molecular Studies in St. Lucie County and Scripps Research Institute in Jupiter. Our team also met with key players in recruiting these institutes to Florida including former Orange County Mayor Rich Crotty, Assistant County Administrator for Palm Beach County Shannon LaRocque-Bass & Florida Governor Jeb Bush in Coral Gables.
