Nathan Evans, a Principal and registered patent attorney in the Woods Rogers Intellectual Property group, was recently appointed Corporate Secretary of the Board of Directors of CvilleBioHub. The organization supports the biotechnology industry in the Charlottesville area “through engagement, resourcing, and advocacy.” One of their guiding principles is the importance of developing strong relationships between the biotech network and the local community. To that end, CvilleBioHub has expanded its Board of Directors to include four new members.
“I see so much innovation coming out of UVA and Charlottesville, and I want to see Virginia, Cville and the surrounding areas become leaders of innovation in biotechnology and pharma that attract new opportunities and local jobs,” said Nathan. He is looking forward to supporting CvilleBioHub as they work toward their goal of doubling the size of the biotech industry in Charlottesville and Central Virginia by 2030.
