This is A-State Connections on KASU. I’m Johnathan Reaves. This is the weekly segment called “A-State Connections and Create@State: Making Connections That Count”. We start a series of interviews about the Arkansas Biosciences Institute and research that has been supported by ABI. Telling us more about ABI is the Director of the Arkansas Biosciences Institute Dr. Bobby McGehee. He is also the Dean of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences Graduate School and is a Professor in the UAMS Department of Pediatrics. Dr. McGehee tells about how ABI was formed statewide. We also get an update on the ABI building at A-State in Jonesboro, which turned 15 on September 18. Dr. Tom Risch is Vice Provost for Research and Technology Transfer and the Executive Director of the Arkansas Biosciences Institute. Click on the Listen button to hear more.
