See you later not goodbye

The time has come to say goodbye and to take the next step in my career journey. It’s bittersweet as I announce that I’ll be leaving Virginia Bio at the end of this week. I’ve been incredibly honored to get to know you all, and to work with so many amazing people over the years.

During my time here I’ve proudly witnessed the phenomenal growth of the Virginia Bio community. New companies have formed and many of the start-ups from my early days have grown into mature companies. The depth and definition of life science has evolved and changed to embrace a wider variety of organizations. New funding sources have come to fruition and collaboration seems at an all-time high. It’s an exciting time for the industry in Virginia.

Even though I won’t be a part of Virginia Bio any more, I’ll continue to cheer you on, rooting for your success and championing your efforts. Connect with me on LinkedIn or send me a note at to stay in touch.

You will be in capable hands with Caron Trumbo and Cassandra Isley available to help with your needs. “Be strong as you fight your way to success, the difficulty you face is nothing compared to the joy of success.”

Charlottesville Teen Competes for Virginia

Posted By Administration, Thursday, May 23, 2019
Updated: Wednesday, May 22, 2019
Virginia Bio and the Virginia Bioscience Foundation have named Albemarle High School Junior, Paula Zhu of Charlottesville as the winner of the 2019 Virginia BioGENEius Challenge, the premier competition for high school students that recognizes outstanding research and innovation in the biotechnology field. As the Virginia BioGENEius finalist, Paula will attend the 2019 BIO International Convention in Philadelphia, the industry’s trade conference, where she will engage with leading companies, scientists and innovators currently transforming the scientific landscape in order to gain invaluable insights into an industry making significant contributions to the world.

Paula’s project, titled "3D Spatiotemporal Profiling of Adrenergic and Cholinergic Transmission” focused on two brain neurotransmitters. “Many neurological diseases result from NE/ACh transmission problems, but even normal transmission is poorly understood. My findings reshape views on NE/ACh transmission and will help us understand transmission and NE/ACh dysregulation diseases,” said Paula. The project was selected by an independent panel of volunteer judges representing the Virginia Bio membership.

In Philadelphia, Paula will compete against students from the U.S., Canada and Germany in the International BioGENEius Challenge. The projects presented will represent a range of biotechnology topics such as healthcare, agriculture, and the environment.

“The Challenge highlights the breakthroughs made when we invest and encourage our younger generations to pursue their ideas. These students are facing the world’s greatest challenges and doing impressive work to understand them,” said Jeff Gallagher, Virginia Bio CEO. “Virginia is excited to have Paula represent the state at the 2019 BIO International Convention as we already know that her research has great potential to help society as well as inspire others to pursue research projects.”

Winners of the International BioiGENEius Challenge will be announced during the Tuesday, June 4th keynote at the 2019 BIO International Convention. The winners will receive a $7,500 cash prize.
