When you google the word Biotech one of the first results listed (not far under the wikipedia definition) is the website for the Massachusetts Biotechnology Council, now known as MassBio. This is an organization with an ambitious mission and the proven ability to carry it out.
Join us as Caturano & Company hosts the Boston Irish Business Association for an evening with MassBio President & CEO Robert Coughlin. Mr. Coughlin will give us an update into the ever changing world of biotech and how his organization is encouraging, supporting and moving innovation and investment forward as the Commonwealth continues to lead the nation's biotech industry.
With the recent biotech rennaisance in Ireland, driven by investment under the National Development Plan (NDP) and Massachusetts at the forefront of biotech innovation and investment, this meeting is essential and aims to build on the great partnerships already established.
FREE PARKING - COMPLIMENTARY BEER, WINE & HORS D'OEUVRES - DOORS OPEN AT 5:30 PM
The program will run from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. (with more networking to follow).
