The magazine of the Indiana Health Industry Forum and Indiana Medical Device Manufacturers Council was published by the Indianapolis Business Journal (IBJ) as a special supplement.

As part of the collaboration, B2S Labs® officers will lecture at Franklin College and the company will offer internships.

B2S Labs® Chief Scientific Officer Ron Bowsher tells IBJ contributing editor Tom Harton that he hopes the partnership will open doors for small business grants from the National Institutes of Health, benefiting both the company and the college — as well as the city and county.

“For the city of Franklin and Johnson County, if you’re trying to diversify your economy, it takes a company like B2S to seed that,” Bowsher says. “We feel like Johnson County is primed for growth in the life sciences sector, and we’re excited to be a part of it. Franklin College makes an ideal academic partner for developing future scientists and science business professionals.”

The full article, “Franklin College could be key to Johnson County’s life sciences economy,” is available at issues.IBJ.com/IBJ/magazines/Bio-Futures/2015 (see page 12) and on Franklin College’s website.

A profile of B2S Labs® written by the Franklin-based Daily Journal newspaper was also recently reprinted in the spring edition of Franklin College Magazine (see pages 38-39).

Ron Bowsher is also president of sister company B2S Consulting®, which is the consulting division of B2S Life Sciences®. B2S Labs® is its laboratory division.
