Biotech: Economist has doubts on industry
■ From page 1
industry — which for more than
a decade has promoted its po-
tential as a major private sector
jobs creator — crying foul.
   Patricia Beckmann, executive
director of OTRADI, says she
came to Oregon from Seattle,
where she had worked at that
city’s bioscience accelerator,
precisely because she was told
an accelerator would be built as
an extension of the drug devel-
opment institute here.
   An accelerator, sometimes
called an incubator, is a place
for scientists to nurture small
startup companies that grow
from their research. As an ex-
ample, a scientist at a research
institution like OHSU will pat-
ent a new drug compound or
medical device and then set up
an office with access to labora-
tory testing equipment. For a
year or two, the scientist works
to make his or her idea market-
able enough to attract investors
who will fund the necessary
years of development and clini-
cal trials.
   That second step usually oc-
curs in a bioscience accelerator
or incubator, where subsidized
lab space is doled out to the sci-
entists with the most promising
ideas. And that space was sup-
posed to be included in the
South Waterfront complex,
along with space for OTRADI.
   In 2009, Beckmann testified
