Seattle - Washington Technology Center (WTC) will host a one-day tour of Washington State University specifically for biotechnology and biomedical device companies on November 10, 1998. The tour will showcase the facilities available to the biotech industry, and will include WSU's Veterinary Hospital, the Institute for Biological Chemistry, and the Laboratories for Bioanalysis and Biotechnology. An afternoon session is reserved to allow company representatives to meet individually with university researchers with expertise in their specific field of interest.

"Initiating these relationships between high-tech companies and university research facilities here in Washington is a big part of our mission at WTC."

Washington Technology Center is a state-funded agency committed to facilitating and providing funding for industry/university research collaborations that will result in commercially promising technology development.
