Rising Australian biotech stars set to connect on the world stage
Date:3/27/2008

Two of Australias leading life scientists have been chosen from a highly competitive field of candidates to take part in an initiative by Merck Sharp & Dohme and Advance to boost the capability of the countrys burgeoning biopharmaceutical industry.

Antisense Therapeutics Ltd (ASX code: ANP) Research Director Dr Christopher Wraight and DendriMed Research Director Dr Raisa Monteiro have been selected as joint winners of the 2008 Advancing BioBusiness Award, which aims to expand vital global connections for Australian science and foster more international business for local life sciences companies.

They will attend the worlds largest biotechnology meeting, the Biotechnology Industry Organisation (BIO) international convention in Boston in May, which attracts over 22,000 visitors.

A tailored program of meetings will also be scheduled with leading American organisations and individuals including venture capital firms, research institutes, biotechnology entrepreneurs and biopharmaceutical companies. This will help build valuable international networks, knowledge and collaborations that will benefit their business and the Australian industry.

The Advancing BioBusiness Award is an innovative scheme by Merck Sharp & Dohme and Advance, a dynamic, diverse global community of Australian professionals overseas committed to advancing Australia and Australians.

Senator Kim Carr, Minister for Innovation, Industry, Science and Research, said:

"The Advancing BioBusiness Award complements the Rudd Government's policy of promoting innovation and commercialisation in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical sector, encouraging closer links between Australian biotech and global pharmaceutical companies, and helping Australian biotechs access global supply chains."

Dr Phil Kearney, Merck Sharp & Dohmes manager for external scientific affairs, said Australia is recognised for its excellence in medical research
