BIoBuzzISPEMarch 28, 2024, Baltimore, MD. – BioBuzz Networks and the International Society of Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE) – Chesapeake Bay Area (CBA) Chapter are pleased to announce the establishment of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the two organizations. This MOU will enable both BioBuzz and ISPE-CBA to formally work together to help strengthen Maryland’s pharmaceutical and biotech industries by building a stronger, more connected community.

Both Biobuzz and ISPE-CBA provide important educational and networking opportunities for the large biopharma community that has grown in Maryland. In fact, the BioHealth Capital Region (Maryland / Virginia / Washington, D.C) is the third largest biopharma cluster in the United States. Working as ISPE-CBA’s official media partner, the partnership will enable BioBuzz to participate in each of ISPE-CBA’s many events, which include sustainability and other educational webinars and site tours, Women in Pharma®, Emerging Leader, and Student educational and networking initiatives, and numerous social events, as well as the Chapter’s annual conference, the Mid-Atlantic Science & Technology (MAST) Meeting, which provides a full day of education, networking opportunities, and an exhibit hall for pharma/biotech companies and service providers alike to share their products, introduce their company, and raise their brand’s industry profile.  ISPE-CBA, based on this partnership, will enjoy continuous promotion on BioBuzz’ substantial online media network, with a reach of more than 400,000 viewers, and will enjoy an enhanced presence at BioBuzz’ many networking events held throughout Maryland each year.

In a joint statement issued by Lynne Cooper, President of ISPE-CBA Chapter, and Chris Frew, President of BioBuzz Networks, the two shared their enthusiasm for this new alliance. “We are delighted that our two organizations have joined together to strengthen the Maryland Life Sciences,” they said. “The biotech industry contributes $20 billion to our state’s economy each year, and average annual life sciences incomes are significantly higher than other industries in Maryland. The biotech sector is creating jobs, driving growth, and building an economy fit for the 21st century. Our joint mission is to enhance industry efforts for our members in developing, manufacturing, and reliably delivering quality medicines to patients worldwide. We are extremely excited to join forces and collaborate to continue to enhance, and grow, these critical initiatives for our State.”
