Oregon bioscience leader appointed to national role

Dennis McNannay, executive director of the Oregon Bioscience Association, has been appointed to a national board.

McNannay will serve on the Council of State Bioscience Associations’ board of directors for 2015-16. The group is an autonomous council of state-based biotech associations operating within the Biotechnology Industry Organization.

The council links up thousands of bioscience companies through the U.S.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to grow awareness around the strengths and successes of Oregon’s life sciences and biotechnology industry, especially the well-recognized workforce training and the rise in research and development for both new devices and new medicines,” McNannay said in a statement.

Oregon is home to 802 bioscience companies, according to the industry organization.
