The TCIC recently joined the regional trade association, Life Sciences Alley. Based in Minnesota, this group works with industrial, clinical and academic partners across the region to enhance collaborations and interactions on a number of fronts that relate to life science issues. Following the TCIC’s first contact with the group, Life Sciences Alley has already facilitated initial contacts for the TCIC with two industrial organizations in the region. TCIC Director Tim Lyden expects that this connection will help develop significant new collaborations in the Twin Cites and beyond.
