"In ceremonies held at the Colorado Governor's Residence at the Boettcher Mansion, the first class of 'Boettcher Investigators' in the Webb-Waring Biomedical Research Program was introduced by Edward D. 'Ted' White III, Chairman of the Boettcher Foundation Board of Trustees. Colorado Governor Bill Ritter, Jr.; Gregory Downey, M.D., Executive Vice President of Academic Affairs at National Jewish Health and Professor of Medicine, Pediatrics and Immunology at University of Colorado's School of Medicine; and Timothy W. Schultz, President and Executive Director of the Boettcher Foundation, also spoke at the historic event.
The announcement is made by Denise M. Brown, Interim Executive Director of the Colorado BioScience Association (CBSA), who says the Boettcher Foundation's new program fills an important unmet need by assisting early-career investigators engaged in biomedical sciences in Colorado to advance their research and honors the tradition of the Webb and Waring families by investing in science that has the possibility of making significant contributions to human health. Boettcher Foundation is a 2010 Gold Sponsor of the CBSA."
