Who’s Getting Promoted!? Jenn’s Getting Promoted!Jennifer O'Donnell is appointed the new Executive Director of BioNB Andrew Byrne June 5, 2019
Please join us in congratulating Jenn (just not all at once because her inbox is already so full 😛 ) in taking on the new role of Executive Director with BioNB, effective June 3rd, 2019. We know she will remain committed to being a champion for the up-and-coming technologies of New Brunswick researchers and biotech organizations, and seize the opportunities that the bioeconomy presents for New Brunswick.
2019 has been an exciting year for BioNB with the launch of a new start-up company under BioNB’s banner and a growing need to scale up that new entity. As a result, BioNB’s Executive Director, Meaghan Seagrave has moved over to lead BioNB’s new subsidiary company and Jennifer O’Donnell has assumed the role of Executive Director of BioNB as of today, June 3, 2019.
Jennifer joined BioNB in 2013 following her work in several early-stage biotech companies where she was involved with diagnostic testing for the agriculture industry, high-throughput genomics, and crop biotechnology. She holds an M.Sc. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from Dalhousie University.
Jennifer has been responsible for delivering commercialization support services and bioscience sector expertise to many of BioNB’s clients over the years. Recently, she co-authored Canada’s National Bioeconomy Strategy, helped to lead a Canadian Supercluster application, participated in regional and national scientific funding review committees, and works across industries and borders to build collaborations and identify opportunities that support stakeholders in New Brunswick.
The BioNB team would like to also acknowledge Meaghan’s impressive contributions to the province and the sector which are too numerous to mention here. We are overjoyed that our paths will continue to be intertwined as BioNB and its affiliates reach for even greater heights moving forward.
