Laura is our primary liaison with the province’s research institutions, universities, and community colleges. A talented researcher in her own right, with experience working with companies such as Procter & Gamble and Velocys, Laura understands the crucial role that research and research commercialization can play in creating a strong culture of innovation in New Brunswick.
