NEOBio, the umbrella organization for Northeast Ohio bioscience people, kicked back into life this week with a gathering hosted at Thomson, Hine’s downtown offices. Representatives from the student world (Ph.D. candidate Gurkan Bebek, L)and from hot bio companies like Analiza (Arnon Chait) joined host Steve Goldberg (R) of NEObio to see what everyone else has been up to since the last big meeting hosted by Orbital Research several months ago.
As usual, it was one of the best networking events that takes place in this area. A lot of people who care passionately about their work, sharing their challenges, finding out what’s new, and thinking up new ways to work together…a far cry from groups that get together just to beat each other up for business. NEObio is more about building relationships. I like that.
