Arizona Bioscience Celebrates Leaders New and Old

– September 22, 2016

padt-azbio-awards-2016The Arizone high tech community gathered in downtown Phoenix Wednesday night to celebrate the leaders in the Biotech community at the annual AZBio Awards. As the premier event of a very busy AZBio Weekthe audience was joined by key companies and investors from outside of Arizona as well. The winners showed the diversity and promise of what companies in the state have accomplished and what they plan to do in the future. Governor Ducey also stopped by to say a few words about the progress that the community has made. A list of the winners can be found at the bottom of this post with links to more information describing what they have done to make the world a better place.

20160921_193755Every year we are pleased to see more and more people that we work with take home the trophies provided by PADT.  Once again we made the awards themselves using a combination of 3D Printing and traditional manufaturing.

As a bit of a humble brag, we had the pleasure of providing assistance to the following individuals, shools, and companies who were recognized:

Global Med was recognized as 2016 Bioscience Company of the Year. They have used PADT for prototyping and even low volume production of their innovative telemedicine solution. Their growth has allowed for the delivery of quality health car to places around the world that are ohterwise unreachable.

Salutaris MD won a Fast Track award for their device that treats wet macular digenerations.  We are proud to have been involved at the very begining during prototyping and most recently as they prepare for clinical trials.

ASU’s Dr. George Poste received the 2016 AZBio Pioneer Award for Lifetime Achievement for the significant contributions he has made during his carreer.  In addition the recipient of the 2016 Arizona Bioscience Researcher of the Year award was the ASU BioDesign Institute’s Stephen Johnston, PhD.  The University in general, and the Biodesign Institute in particular, are long time customers and heavy users of ANSYS and Stratasys products proved and supported by PADT.

Paradise Valley School’s Marni Landry was recognized with the Michael A. Cusanovich Bioscience Educator of the Year.  PV school district was one of th first High Schools to adopt 3D Printing into their STEM ciriculum.

In addition, we were very pleased to see that one of our awards will be headed to Washington with Kyrtsten Sinema who was recongnized for her efforts to promote BioTech and Arizona in congress. Rep Sinema represents the district that includes PADT’s main office in Tempe and has been one of our favorite politicians since her bi-partisisn and common sense efforts in the Arizona State Legislature.

And finaly, a shout out to one of the other Fast Track award winners, Beacon Biomedical. PADT is looking at Beacon as an Angel Investment oportunity and they are across the hallway from PADT StartupLabs at CEI in Phoenix.

A big congratulations to all of the winners.  The Bioscience commnity in the state is growing and at or near critical mass. From High Schools to large corporations with everything in between, our local companies are making the world a better place through better health technology.
