Last night in a crowded room at the Vista at Valero, the who’s who of San Antonio’s leadership, bioscience, and medical community gathered to honor Dr. Francisco Cigarroa, a South Texas native and local San Antonio leader, with the ninth annual Julio Palmaz Award for his work in bioscience and biomedical education.

The award is presented by BioMed SA, a nonprofit born out the San Antonio Chamber of Commerce’s 2005 Economic Outlook Conference as a way to promote a sector of the city’s economy that employs 1/6th of the population and has an economic impact of more than $30 billion dollars.
