Hey Helen and Deborah; I'm happy for you, and especially happy for the seven jobs created by these exciting new Biotech startups. It is obvious that this type of business venture is a good fit for our community. Most importantly, these new additions to the UVA Research Park community are sure to eventually fill the GAPING HOLES left by the 2009 closing of Biotage (and its 50 jobs); and the slow, sad demise of the once mighty PRA International which - unmentioned by the tofu-slurping, UVA-bootlicking media - went from the crown jewel of the Research Park and of the company itself, sitting high on the hill in their four story building with over 400 employees, to a pathetic whimper of its former presence (part of one floor in another building and several dozen scared employees.) I wonder if Biotage and PRA were ever called "great examples of the kind of business venture that fit so well in our community?" I must have missed that.

Tom, Helen and Deborah sound like they're running a political campaign and touting success while conveniently forgetting to point out the biotech industries of the past as CvilleGordo pointed out.

Well, for starters; a business environment that encourages thriving, global leaders like Biotage and PRA to KEEP a major facility right here in Virginia.

Gordo, Sounds like you didn't leave PRA when you should have.
Let me know if you need a gig.
