Several graduate students have joined together to create the EnventureSA chapter in San Antonio. It is a community-driven organization that is committed to accelerating the growth of San Antonio’s biomedical community.
“We plan to do this by equipping, empowering, and connecting tomorrow’s scientific leaders to the biotech industry in the city,” said Justin Moroney, a student in the Integrated Biomedical Sciences Program who is also part of EnventureSA. “We invite young professionals of all sorts (M.D., Ph.D., M.B.A. and J.D.) that are interested in life-science innovation to engage through our free programming including networking experimental learning and consulting.
