Halloran Sponsors 2022 Champions for Biotechnology Education Awards
PRESS RELEASE – Wednesday, November 9, 2022 – BOSTON, MA – Halloran Consulting Group (Halloran) sponsored MassBioEd’s 7th Annual Champions for Biotechnology Education Awards Reception held on October 27, 2022 at the Museum of Science in Boston, Massachusetts. Halloran is proud to support the life sciences industry of Massachusetts by way of this event so we can continue to support the next generation of talent, offer more career opportunities, especially to underserved communities, and leverage the economic benefits the industry generates for this state.
This awards reception celebrates outstanding advocacy for, and contributions to, life sciences education in Massachusetts. Each year, MassBioEd honors an organization, an educator, and a school for their commitment to fostering science literacy and advancing life sciences education. A student is also awarded a scholarship to be used towards their life sciences field of study.
In particular, the educator and student scholarship awards are supported by Henri A. Termeer Foundation in honor of Henri A. Termeer and his commitment to scientific discovery and mentorship of aspiring and accomplished scientists. The school award is supported by the Joshua Boger Family Foundation and named after Joshua Boger to recognize his sustained commitment to excellence in science education.
This event is MassBioEd’s annual fundraiser to raise funds to generate support programs to build a strong and diverse life sciences workforce. Sponsors, like Halloran, join their community in honoring awardees for their dedication to empowering students to enter careers in the life sciences.
We celebrate the 2022 awardees:
- Champion Organization: Corning Life Sciences
