Portsmouth, NH- April 11, 2018- Stratacuity and the Boston Postdoctoral Association (BPDA) are excited to announce a partnership that will help the best and brightest scientific minds in the Greater Boston area take their talents to the biotech community and help deliver therapies to patients in need.
The BPDA’s postdoctoral scientists are excited at the idea of improving treatment outcomes for patients,” says Sarah Dykstra, leader of the Boston Postdoctoral Association. “Our new partnership with Stratacuity is a wonderful opportunity to bring highly motivated, highly trained researchers to work on the toughest problems in Biotech and Pharma. We’re pleased to partner with Stratacuity to leverage their deep expertise to connect Boston’s best Biotech talent with companies whose missions are to develop life-changing therapies for patients.”
“It’s a partnership that makes a lot of sense,” says Erik Rocheford, Director Business Development at Stratacuity, “we have been providing career counseling to these talented scientists for years as an organization and have created customized programming for BPDA events over the last few years. With this partnership, we can step up that effort and help the next wave of drug hunters navigate the waters that are Boston biotech hiring. Purpose is one of our core values. Our purpose is to bring therapies to patients by bringing talented scientists to companies. We can think of no one better to help with that mission than Sarah and the BPDA.”
