Ukraine’s Ambassador to the United States Valeriy Chaly (third from left in the photo) visited the U.S.-Ukraine Foundation’s BioUkraine stand at the International Biothechnology Convention in Philadelphia. Accompanying him was Dmytro Shymkiv, former Deputy Head of the Administration of the President of Ukraine (first on the left). The Foundation and the Embassy have been collaborating in support of Ukraine’s highly-promising biotech sector. BioUkraine is a program of the U.S.-Ukraine Foundation’s Biotechnology Initiative.
Through this initiative the U.S.-Ukraine Foundation aims to advance the state of biotech in Ukraine by fostering educational, research and business development in the sector and raising international awareness about biotech opportunities in Ukraine. The Foundation envisions providing support to Ukrainian students, researchers and entrepreneurs who wish to engage with the American biotech community through educational exchanges, attendance at conferences and participation in trade shows.
