Having been quoted as saying, "It's all about taking New Jersey to the next level," Dr. Pecora played a leadership role in creating Hackensack Meridian Health's establishment of a $25 million investment fund and innovation and incubator, as well as working with Celgene Corporation to establish the Multiple Myeloma Institute, a leading-edge research facility at the Seton Hall-Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine scheduled to open in 2018.
"Given his innovative and groundbreaking work over many, many years, a demonstrated and strong commitment to growing the life sciences ecosystem in New Jersey and an unbridled passion for patients, Dr. Pecora is uber deserving of this award," said BioNJ President and CEO Debbie Hart. "We are delighted to honor this kind and humble man in this way."
Please join us on Thursday, February 1, at the Hilton East Brunswick, for BioNJ's Annual Dinner Meeting & Innovation Celebration where we will honor Dr. Pecora. Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of our first Annual Meeting, we have an exciting evening planned, including a Keynote presentation, the Innovator Awards and plenty of networking over a cocktail reception, dinner and dessert reception!
