BioNJ Public Service Award to Sen. Robert Menendez

January 27, 2011

To the New Jersey Biotechnology Community:

I was very sorry my schedule did not allow me to join you for your Annual Dinner Meeting, Awards Program and Networking Event on Thursday, but I wanted to make sure you received my video message expressing my support for the great work you do.

I also wanted you to know that I was deeply honored to receive BioNJ’s Public Service Award for helping to make the Qualifying Therapeutic Discovery Project a reality.  It is clear to me that all of you in the biotech industry hold the promise for miraculous new discoveries and truly represent a bridge to the future.

Again, I’m very sorry I could not be with you in person, but I hope to see you again very soon.  Keep up the good work.

Sincerely,

Bob Menendez
U.S. Senate
