LifeSciences BC's 18th Annual LifeSciences BC Awards, presented by FARRIS on April 21, 2016, is an opportunity for the life sciences community to celebrate our work together. Recognizing the value creation continuum of the life sciences sector, we celebrate and honour those in our B.C. community who successfully position our province as a competitive global cluster.
 
B.C. has found its place on the international life sciences stage and is recognized in Canada and beyond for its significant accomplishments in medical technology, biopharmaceuticals, health delivery systems, and medical research & development initiatives – the envy of many. We have reached beyond our borders to impact patient health and connect to the world at large, while ensuring the life sciences sector here at home remains vibrant and sustainable.
 
This year’s theme, Local Catalyst | Global Connectivity, reflects those in our community who impact the local ecosystem so that B.C. can connect with the global life sciences community.

As we continue to expand and reach international significance, we are proud of our competencies to engage and succeed on the world stage, where the journey can be arduous and the investment significant. Our life sciences ecosystem is a collaboration between academia and a thriving research & development bionetwork, including world-class healthcare facilities, distinguished health & medical foundations, and renowned centres of excellence. These organizations work together to support the foundation of a world class life sciences cluster.
