BionorthTX has renamed its award for individuals in the health care and life sciences industry in honor of Dennis Stone, former chief scientific officer of Remeditex Ventures.
Formerly the Helix Award, the annual recognition will now be referred to as the Dr. Dennis K. Stone Life Science Achievement Award. It honors individuals who are leaders, innovators, educators, and mentors in the life sciences and health-care industry.
Stone, a longtime advocate for life sciences in North Texas, received the award Oct. 26 at bionorthTX’s annual iC3 summit.
“I can’t think of anyone who has done more to promote biomedical research, to promote the formation of companies, or to promote the North Texas biotech community than Dennis Stone. … It is most appropriate for this award to be renamed in his honor,” Reata Pharmaceuticals CEO Warren Huff said in a release.
