Connecticut is pursuing Bioscience Connecticut, an ambitious initiative to stimulate economic growth and create jobs by establishing the state as a national leader in high-technology fields such as bioscience and engineering. The state’s prominence in these areas was highlighted recently by honors and grants awarded to UConn Health Center faculty member Dr. Cato T. Laurencin and his colleagues at the Institute for Regenerative Engineering. Laurencin is the director of that institute, director of the Raymond and Beverly Sackler Center, and chief executive officer of the Connecticut Institute for Clinical and Translational Science at UConn. He led the Health Center’s efforts to establish Bioscience Connecticut.
