Southeast BIO Names New Executive Director

Filed under: SEBIO News — admin @ 9:36 am

Atlanta, GA- Southeast BIO (SEBIO), a public/private partnership formed in 1999 to promote the growth of the life sciences economy in the Southeast, has named Jennifer Moore, Ph.D., as its new Executive Director. Dr. Moore replaces Stephanie Adams, SEBIO’s second Executive Director.
Moore graduated from Lehigh University with a B.S. in Biochemistry and University of Virginia with a Ph.D. in Molecular Physiology and Biological Physics. Moore has worked for Emory University for the last four and a half years as a Licensing Associate. That role helped prepare her for the new position, notes Garheng Kong, chair of the SEBIO Board of Directors and General Partner with Intersouth Partners. “Jennifer has worked directly with venture capital firms, emerging companies and research institutions- SEBIO’s core constituencies,” Kong explained. “She has learned how to work with busy people and get things done. Jennifer also has a familiarity with the SE life sciences community through her involvement with organizations and events like SEBIO, Georgia Bio and the Association of University Technology Managers. All of those things will really help her to hit the ground running.”
While welcoming Moore, Kong was quick to praise Adams for her efforts. “Stephanie served for more than two years as SEBIO’s second Executive Director. In that role, she made significant contributions both within the greater southeastern community on our behalf, and internally,” Kong said. “Internally, [Stephanie] was invaluable, and her biggest accomplishment was probably pressing our large board of directors into service, organizing the board and making sure that the committees are actively working together for the good of the organization,” Kong added. “We will miss her, but Jennifer is going to be great, building on the momentum that Stephanie has created.”
“I am honored to join SEBIO” said Moore. “I am excited to be on the forefront, supporting the growth of the life sciences industry in the region.”
The Eleventh Annual Southeastern BIO Investor Forum will take place December 3-4, 2009, at the Charleston Place Resort in Charleston, SC.
