13 Jul 2018
New Haven Biz talks with Christine Broadbridge, dean of graduate studies, research, and innovation at Southern Connecticut State University and head of the university's Office for STEM Leadership and Innovation, about Southern's efforts to build a biotech workforce pipeline in the region.
Q: Southern's BioPath partnership with the city of New Haven, aimed at increasing STEM opportunities in the area, was official in 2015. How have the objectives been fulfilled? In what ways have objectives changed or been modified?
A: The Bioscience Academic and Career Pathway Initiative (BioPath) was created to benefit the Greater New Haven region, which is home to the second-largest cluster of biotechnology companies in New England. In just three years, this partnership has made great and exciting leaps toward serving that mission.
