BCM’s Dr. Maria Elena Bottazzi Embodies Exactly What Houston — And All Of Texas Biotech — Desperately Needs
Bio News Texas highlights the work of Sabin's Maria Elena Bottazzi, director of product developemnt.
"After the 10-year growth period of the enterprise’s brand at GW, the School of Tropical Medicine was ready to be launched entering into a new phase and gain more visibility, funding and resources. When Dr. Hotez was approached by BCM to move his operation to Texas, it presented great opportunity, according to Dr. Bottazzi — particularly, having the opportunity to work amid the largest medical center in the U.S. “There’s nowhere else like it in the U.S., where you’re all in one contiguous area. Even Boston and Silicon Valley aren’t the same. The medical center — it’s as large as downtown Los Angeles with 100,000 employees. A key point of attraction.”
