In the continuing series 'Live from @BIOconvention 2017' Health Innovation Media co-host Douglas Goldstein (@eFuturist) catches up with Richard BendisPresident & CEO, BioHealth Innovation, Inc who's mission is to put the 'Capitol Region' (Maryland, Northern Virgina & D.C.) on the life sciences map:

'The BioHealth Capital Region has unmatched biohealth assets from iconic federal institutions, world-class universities, top-notch healthcare facilities, and global and emerging bioscience companies. However, we have yet to fully realize the return on investment from these assets. This is largely due to the lack of a cohesive strategy in moving ideas from labs to the market. While other regions with far less assets have proactively addressed this opportunity by creating innovation-driven economic development organizations and initiatives. It is time central Maryland started to close this gap, and it is BioHealth Innovation’s mission to complete.'
