The Nevada Biotechnology and Bioscience Consortium, an organisation focused on biotech and medical device research, has honoured a US senator for securing funds for the state's universities. Senator Harry Reid, a Democrat from Nevada, has secured more than $100m for Nevada universities in his role as a congressman, helping to boost the heavily research-dependent bioscience sector. "Senator Reid has arguably been the state's leading supporter of higher education here," consortium president John Laub said. Senator Reid received the inaugural Harry Reid Award for Biotechnology in Nevada at a ceremony in February at the state's College of Life Sciences.
