Executive Director, Colorado Biotechnology Association
“The Colorado Life Science Experience – Highlights and Lessons Learned”
Denise Brown joined the Colorado Biotechnology Association in August 2002. In 2003, a merger with the Colorado Medical Device Association resulted in the creation of the Colorado BioScience Association (CBSA). She brings 27 years of experience to the position of Executive Director of the CBSA. She worked for the Colorado General Assembly in 1976 and 1977. From 1977 through 1984, she worked for the Governor of Colorado in three different senior staff positions, including Director of the Governor’s Job Training Office. During her 17 years at the University of Colorado (1984 – 2001) she led major projects such as the corporate reorganization of University Hospital in the late 1980’s, the transfer of the School of Pharmacy from the Boulder to the Health Sciences Center Campus, and the Fitzsimons Master Plan. She served as Chief of Staff to the President of CU for four years during her tenure at the University.
The CBSA currently has more than 300 members from the biotechnology, medical device, pharmaceutical, and agricultural biotechnology, sectors; research and education institutions, economic development agencies, and service providers. The primary goals of CBSA include: serving as a single, coordinated voice for the bioscience industry; creating value-added programs and networking opportunities for its members; supporting and promoting changes in Colorado that will result in a better business environment for bioscience companies; and providing information about the industry to the community-at-large. She serves as the lead manager for the implementation of the statewide bioscience plan.
