The city of Mason, AssureRx Health Inc. and BioOhio are teaming up to hold the Ohio Biomedical & Pharma career fair in Mason today.
Twelve local bioscience companies are expected to participate in the fair, which takes place from 2-6 p.m. at the Mason Municipal Center, 6000 Mason-Montgomery Road.
More than 150 job-seekers are expected to take part in the event, which is free and open to the public.
Companies represented include: Advanced Testing Laboratory, Aerotek Scientific, Alliance Scientific, Amylin Ohio, AptalisPharmatech, Assurex Health, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, Forest Pharmaceuticals, Lab Support, Medpace and Patheon Pharmaceuticals
Tours of AssureRx’s health genetics lab and the Mason Community Center will also be offered. AssureRx develops diagnostic tests that help physicians prescribe optimal medications for neuropsychiatric patients.
The event is the first of three BioOhio career events being held across the state this month. Two other fairs are set for April 15 in Columbus and April 18 in Cleveland.
Mason was selected to host the event for its position as a “hub” for new technology and bioscience growth in the Greater Cincinnati area, said event organizers.
The city is home to more than 100 corporate, high-tech and industrial businesses such as Cintas, Procter & Gamble, Luxottica Retail, Mitsubishi, AssureRx Health and FANUC Robotics America, among others.
Ohio’s bio-science industry consistently ranks in the top in the nation, with average wages beginning at more than $75,000, according to event sponsor BioOhio, a nonprofit organization that supports bioscience industry and research in Ohio.
