Palm Beach County wants to expand life science industry

Palm Beach County’s life science industry — controversial for the amount of tax dollars sunk into it more than a decade ago — will get a face-lift. Business Development Board president Kelly Smallridge on Tuesday unveiled an effort aimed at expanding the county’s life science businesses. Florida Atlantic University president John Kelly said this is a good time to take a reflective look at the county’s life science industry, which he said needs to work on retaining the students it trains in bioscience. Companies like Modernizing Medicine at FAU’s Research Park in Boca Raton will keep those students here, he said. “They can’t resist it,” Kelly said.
