Paul Drohan from Life Sciences BC talks about their role supporting the British Columbia Life Science Community. This includes helping to promote a new Tech Fund of $100million from the British Columbia government aimed at potential high growth tech start-ups. He also talks about doing deals with China, and the BC Province's connection with this Asian powerhouse.
Paul V. Drohan has over 25 years of experience in the global biopharmaceutical industry, and returned last year from the United Kingdom where he lived and worked for the past eight years.

Paul looks to bring this knowledge and experience back to Canada's life sciences sector.
