Massachusetts has long been the epicenter of biopharma research and development. Years of investment and collaboration between industry, academia, and government has provided biopharma manufacturers a rich and deep talent landscape in Massachusetts. Join leaders in the biopharma industry and higher education as they discuss current talent development assets, share initiatives to grow talent even further, and look to the future as the industry continues its growth in Massachusetts.

This virtual Forum, hosted in partnership by MassBio, MassECON, MassBioEd, and the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center, will include an overview of current biopharma talent assets and how the pool of talent has grown in recent years, followed by an industry-higher education panel that will share case studies on collaboration and insights on what is on the horizon for new talent development.
