State Senator Joe Kyrillos (R- Monmouth) has been named "State Senator of the Year" by BIO-NJ. The group is the New Jersey Chapter of the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO), the industry leading advocacy and support group.
"As the Medicine Chest of the World, New Jersey's economy is intimately tied to a thriving biotech industry," said Senator Kyrillos. "It is a point of pride for all New Jerseyans that life saving innovations happen right here in our great state, and it is incumbent upon policymakers to do everything we can to nurture and encourage this industry. I'm honored to receive this award."
Senator Kyrillos was honored at BIO-NJ's Annual Dinner Meeting last night.
