I am thrilled to share that Maryland Life Sciences has just won the 2021 BioBuzz Media Award for its popular marketing campaign — “It’s Better Here.”

One year ago, Maryland Life Sciences launched the “It’s Better Here” campaign to share with the world why Maryland–and the BioCapital region–is a global life science hotbed. The campaign told the stories of the men and women driving innovation in the four life sectors that propel our region: vaccine development, cell & gene therapy, biomanufacturing, and immunotherapy. 

You can read the stories from GSK, Rooster Bio, Zalgen, Altimmune, Noble Life Sciences, Advanced Bioscience Laboratories, and many more by visiting the Maryland Life Sciences It’s Better Here campaign page.

As BioBuzz puts it, this award, “recognizes the media campaigns or platforms that successfully engaged, informed and connected people and reflected favorably on the BioHealth Capital Region.” Thanks to the BioBuzz team and all those in our community who voted for It’s Better Here. 

A big congratulations goes to our remarkable staff for executing this campaign, particularly Wendy Worm, Vice President of Marketing & Programs; Angela Hongmanivanh, Creative Designer and Digital Manager, and Michelle Ferrone, Vice President of Operations. 

Most importantly, I want to thank you–the men and women of Maryland’s life sciences community. Your tireless pursuit of the vaccines, therapies, products, and services that save lives truly make it “Better Here” in Maryland and the BioCapital Region. This honor would not be possible without you.
