  • Bob Nelsen, Managing Director and Co-founder, ARCH Venture Partners
  • Chris Rivera, President, Washington Biotechnology and Biomedical Association

The panel members discussed specific policy changes that are needed to create a healthy environment for innovation and discovery - including policies that can attract companies and well-paying jobs to the region, promote risk-taking in research and development, encourage more students to participate in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education, attract the best and brightest researchers, and support basic scientific research and development.
