Last month, RatnerPrestia sponsored the Academic Research Award presented to Kristi Kiick, Ph.D. by Delaware Bio at its 2013 Annual Awards Gala, held on May 22 at the DuPont Country Club (Wilmington, DE).

More than 300 academic, government and industry leaders, including RatnerPrestia Shareholder Rex A. Donnelly and Counsel Ling Zhong, Ph.D., gathered at the event to recognize all of this year’s honorees, who have made significant contributions to the state’s life science community.
