Add to Calendar 5/11/2021 11:00:00 AM 5/11/2021 11:30:00 AM Town Hall: Exploring Massachusetts’ Opportunities for Sustainable Expansion of the Life Sciences

Like the companies it supports, the Massachusetts life sciences industry must continue to innovate in order to remain the leader in the global biopharma ecosystem. As the industry looks to the “next normal,” Massachusetts has a unique opportunity to grow vertically by expanding its leadership beyond R&D and horizontally by expanding the ecosystem beyond the Cambridge/Boston cluster.

During our May Town Hall, panelists will discuss how Massachusetts can build a stronger, more sustainable biopharma cluster through expansion-focused economic development.
 

NOTE: MassBio makes every effort to accommodate our entire community at each of our events. Please let us know at least 3 days in advance of the event if you require special accommodations, such as captioning.
