On August 20, Stephen Ezell gave the keynote address at the 2nd Annual Triangle Biotech Research Symposium held in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. Organized by the BioPharma Research Council in coordination with the North Carolina Biotechnology Center, the event served to connect leading biomedical researchers at North Carolina universities with representatives from small biotech start-ups and larger biopharmaceutical organizations, with the goal of facilitating the transfer of knowledge and technology within the biotech community. Ezell’s keynote presentation to the audience of 120 focused on policy implications to revitalize American competitiveness, drawing insights from ITIF’s work in Innovation Economics: The Race for Global Advantage and from ITIF’s 2012 report Leadership in Decline: Assessing U.S. Competitiveness in Biomedical Research.
