Last week we celebrated the acceleration of technology between the labs at Fort Detrick and the Frederick business community at the first ever virtual Fort Detrick Alliance/FITCI Technology Showcase.
Thank you to our keynote speaker Brigadier General Michael J. Talley, Commanding General United States Army Medical Research and Development Command Fort Detrick, who discussed the work the Fort has done in combatting COVID-19 and the technological innovations the military has developed to assist the pandemic. We are grateful that Frederick County Executive Jan Gardner, and City of Frederick Mayor Michael O’Connor also joined us and spoke at this notable event. Jennifer Staiger, Fort Detrick Alliance President, announced the winners of the Alliance’s Hoke Award (Harold Modrow), as well as an Innovator of the Year award (NBACC).
FITCI CEO, Kathie Callahan Brady, presented The Edge Accelerator winner (Nick Van Terheyden, Lissen Laboratories) with a cash award. We would also like to thank our sponsors: Tunnell Government Solutions, Frederick County, MD, Frederick County Office of Economic Development, City of Frederick and City of Frederick Department of Economic Development.
