Life Sciences Pennsylvania, Clarkson Consulting to Award $10K Scholarship

Ambler-based MBF Therapeutics, an animal health firm that recently started working on a COVID-19 vaccine for humans, has raised $604K in a private stock sale.

Intent on stoking passion for the life sciences, the Wayne-based state association formerly known as Pennsylvania Bio is again putting serious money behind its advocacy for and promotion of industry growth and development.

Life Sciences Pennsylvania and Clarkston Consulting of North Wales are now taking applications to discover the college sophomore who will become only the fifth to receive $10,000 over two years as the 2017 Clarkston Scholar.
