This year’s Annual Meeting is now the State of Possible Conference where we'll celebrate what’s possible in our industry and for patients today that wasn’t five or 10 years ago. The two-day event will draw over 600 industry leaders from Massachusetts and beyond to debate the most pressing challenges facing the life sciences to ensure we can continue this incredible success. Attendees will hear from the brightest minds through keynotes, panel discussions and 15-minute Possible Talks, inspiring and engaging content in the style of a TED Talk. We'll also have a networking reception, the State of Possible Celebration, immediately following Day 1 of the conference, where we'll have great food, drinks, a DJ. Attendees will also have access to the exhibits at the Museum of Science. Join us as we celebrate the State of Possible!
