The State of Possible Conference, MassBio's Annual Meeting, will now be hosted virtually on August 26-27, 2020. Featuring interactive networking and a groundbreaking viewer experience, this event will not be your average webinar.  

We will 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.

"It's the Woodstock of Life Sciences, with all-star performers playing their greatest hits all on one stage.” – 2019 State of Possible Conference attendee
If you haven’t attended our State of Possible Conference before, it is the premier east coast life sciences conference. We have some of the brightest names in biotech talking about the issues impacting our industry, covering topics from the realities of precision medicine to advancing new drug targets faster.
