AGC Biologics’ Longmont General Manager, Tony Fraij, Joins Colorado BioScience Association Board of Directors

SEATTLE, June 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AGC Biologics, a leading global Biopharmaceutical Contract Development and Manufacturing Organization (CDMO), today announced the appointment of Tony Fraij, AGC Biologics’ Longmont General Manager, to the Colorado BioScience Association (CBSA) Board of Directors.

Thirty board members representing medical device and diagnostics, pharmaceuticals, ag bio and animal health, digital health, academic and research institutions, and service providers make up the CBSA board. Board members work in partnership with CBSA staff to support the growth of Colorado’s life sciences ecosystem of more than 720 companies.

“I’m honored to have been asked to join CBSA’s Board of Directors,” said Tony Fraij. “I very much look forward to supporting the advancement of the life sciences in Colorado – especially the emerging cell and gene therapy community – in partnership with the other Board members, Elyse Blazevich, CBSA President & CEO, and the countless members of this talented community.”

“Colorado BioScience Association welcomes the incoming members of the CBSA Board of Directors, including Tony Fraij of AGC Biologics. AGC Biologics joined our ecosystem two years ago and quickly became an integral part of our community,” said Elyse Blazevich, CBSA President & CEO. “Tony and our other new board members, Phillip Ebner, Mike Freeman, Melissa Krebs, and Erik Velapoldi, represent the diversity of our member base, from startups to commercial companies, ecosystem partners, and service providers. Together, we will build on our ecosystem’s momentum to advance Colorado’s reputation as a leading global hub for life sciences.”

In late March, AGC Biologics deepened its investment in CBSA and Colorado life sciences by becoming the organization’s singular Sustaining Partner – the highest level of sponsorship. AGC Biologics, which operates a large-scale mammalian facility in Boulder and a cell therapy, viral vectors, and gene therapy facility in Longmont, has been a member of CBSA since acquiring its first facility in Colorado, two years ago this month.
