Implementing a SCoRe initiative on New Hampshireâ€™s seacoast. SCoRE stands for Seacoast Center of Research Excellence and would constitute a hub of biomedical businesses serving life sciences industries.
Online PR News – 29-January-2014 – Exeter, N.H. – Governor Maggie Hassan was recently welcomed by the executive team of eClipse(www.eclipsecro.com / www.eclipsesol.com), a company based in Exeter, New Hampshire specializing in managing clinical trials, biomedical research and imaging solutions for the healthcare industry.
The visit highlighted continuing efforts of eClipse to plan and implement a SCoRe initiative on New Hampshireâ€™s seacoast. SCoRE stands for Seacoast Center of Research Excellence and would constitute a hub of biomedical businesses serving life sciences industries.
Governor Hassan was very interested in learning about SCoRe and supported the initial activity leading to larger potential benefits - not only to the local economy, but more importantly to the standard of health care for the local communities.
â€śIt was a very upbeat discussion with the Governor expressing keen interest in the eClipse concept for SCoRE,â€ť shared Gary Noseworthy, Vice President, Partner and Government Programs Development. New Hampshireâ€™s seacoast has a tremendous amount of various resources available; including human resources. Exeter Hospital, UNH as well as other local facilities are capable of supporting such a concept.
Governor Hassan learned from eClipse President & CEO, Leslie Bihari, Jr. that New Hampshire receives significantly less government funding for clinical trials than neighboring Massachusetts. However, the SCoRe concept looks to change that. Mr. Bihari shared, â€śSCoRE will help encourage public and private funding for innovative projects. Additionally, it will attract skilled physicians, increase awareness of local health care, improve reputation of research and education centers and open the doors to new business on the seacoast.â€ť
â€śeClipseâ€™s commitment to innovation in the field of biomedical technology is helping position New Hampshire to lead the way in this critical sector,â€ť Governor Maggie Hassan said. â€śI greatly enjoyed our conversation and appreciated the ideas put forward by eClipse officials to help spur growth in our biomedical technology economy by encouraging collaboration among businesses, health care providers, and higher education. I look forward to working together to encourage more innovative partnerships in order to build a strong economic future for our state.â€ť
