“EDC people are amazing. The agenda that Lauree has outlined does not do justice to the talent behind these initiatives. We are thrilled with our investment and the thoughtfulness and common spirit the EDC shares with the life sciences and tech community. The teamwork in San Diego is special. You definitely should be in the conversation. We are on the cusp of doing something really great."
