UMIC MD wins Biomedical Personality of the Year Award

UMIC is pleased to announce that its Managing Director, Dr Martino Picardo, has been awarded the Biomedical Personality of the Year award 2010 at the gala BIONOW awards dinner which took place on the 11th November. Unable to attend the event himself, Dr. Linda Magee (COO, MAHSC) accepted the award on his behalf and there followed a video message by Martino acknowledging receipt. Martino commented: “This is a great award to win and is a testament to all the hard work and success of the Bioincubation activities in Manchester over the years. It also recognises the tremendous support that has been provided by The University of Manchester throughout this time and all the hard work and support provided by the UMIC staff for which I am extremely grateful. Likewise, I have always appreciated and tried to recognise both the funding and support provided by BIONOW to our Incubation activities in Manchester. Finally, it is recognition of the success achieved by our tenants over the past years which has been most pleasing. I am very grateful to all those colleagues and friends that have passed on their best wishes to me personally since the event on Thursday night. This is a real watershed moment for me.” Anyone requiring further information should contact: martino.picardo@umic.co.uk
