A RARE gem

Recently, PassioInventa’s co-founder and resident StairMaster enthusiast Blaide was awarded an AWESOME scholarship from BioMarin Pharmaceutics, a pharmaceutical company that specializes in creating therapies for people with rare genetic disorders. The RARE Scholar Award is in its second year and awards $5,000 to carefully selected undergraduate and graduate students excelling in their studies and extracurriculars, all the while managing a rare genetic disorder. The Columbus Dispatch (Blaide’s hometown newspaper) wrote a great article on his award that features an interview with Blaide about his genetic disorder, and can be found here. Way to go, guy!
