Welcome to the MLSIC blog. For those of you that don’t know me or may be reading our blog without ever coming to MLSIC; Hello! My name is Cayla and I’ll be entertaining you during your duration of this blog post!
Little bit about me for you. I’m the Innovation Center Coordinator at Michigan Life Science and Innovation Center (MLSIC). I help out our Facilities Manager Fred with the goings on at MLSIC. Aside from that I’m the Friendly face at the front door. Currently, I hold another job as a server/expo at a large restaurant chain (we will leave the name out for safety sake). When I’m not working I also participate in an internship program through Schoolcraft College at the MLSIC center. My team is currently working on a Cyanobacteria based bio fuel. I’m pursuing a degree in general science currently, with the hope of moving on into the field of Marine Archaeology. My passion is discovery and I aim to live my life one discovery after another.
Now a little bit about the Michigan Life Science and Innovation Center. Start with a group of entrepreneurs and economic development agencies determined to make Michigan a hub for the life sciences. Add a 57,000+ square foot life science incubator complete with state-of-the-art labs, well-appointed offices and conference rooms, a loading dock, ample parking, and every possible business amenity. Recruit tenants that include not only start-ups but business accelerator organizations and life science leaders. Provide plenty of opportunities for networking, mentoring and expertise sharing. The result is the Michigan Life Science and Innovation Center (MLSIC). Really we are a fantastic center for start-ups centering in Biopharmaceutical, Life Science and Medical Technology.
With this blog I hope to do two things, Entertain and Educate. The Educate will happen on its own, I’m sure if you’re reading this you, like me, have a compulsion towards discovery and expanding your knowledge of the world around you. The Entertaining part…. Well we will have to see on that one huh? So follow, subscribe or just send me a line with any feedback you’d like.
Thanks for reading!
