"With Sacramento home to a thriving scientific community that spans the range of research areas and disciplines, I will have an invaluable pool of resources from which to draw. Earlier this year I was awed by the cutting-edge research being done at the recently opened Biophotonics Center, which is bringing the study of light to bioengineering and life sciences to improve the quality of life. Demonstrating the value of public private scientific partnership, the Center has already leveraged its research to spin off seven local companies."
