When I moved to Halifax in 2013 the Life Science sector was not very robust, however over the past decade there has been a transformation underway in this sector that has been wonderful to experience. As someone who has devoted my career to Life Science focused companies this has been wonderful to see, and I believe this is only the beginning, said Kevin Sullivan, new Board Chair.” “Alongside the management team at LSNS it is a privilege to serve on the LSNS Board and contribute to the continued growth of the industry.
