South Jersey Technology Park hosts guests from three continents, part of BIO International

Guests came to the South Jersey Technology Park at Rowan University from Italy and Thailand, Germany and China, India and Australia – and more – on June 3.

About 30 people traveled via bus from Philadelphia as part of a South Jersey tour sponsored by BioNJ during the BIO International Convention being held in Philadelphia.

Jeanne Nevelos, executive director of SJTP, and Dr. Beena Sukumaran, vice president for Research, presented an overview of SJTP and of Rowan University. Afterward, the guests cycled through presentations at/by researchers in the Virtual Reality Center, the Orthopedics Research Center and ReGelTec, Inc. to learn more about work that faculty and students are conducting and about the capabilities at the facility.

John Slotman, vice president for Government Affairs for BioNJ, said, “We’re showing off that New Jersey has a vibrant life sciences ecosystem.” He added that a goal of the tour was to demonstrate the opportunities for individuals and companies to “plant roots” in New Jersey.
