In a speech on Tuesday May 8, 2007 at the BIO International Convention held in South Boston, Governor Deval Patrick announced a $1 billion biotech initiative to secure Massachusetts its position as a world leader in biotechnology and stem cell science.
Just over a year later, Dr. Susan Windham-Bannister was appointed by the Board of Directors of the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center (MLSC) - the heart of the state's new of this new $1 billion initiative - to be the Center’s first President and CEO.
Since then, the MLSC has made strategic investments in our life sciences workforce and has become the hub of connectivity for all sectors of the life sciences community - encouraging unprecedented public-private collaboration among industry, research, academia and government.
Please join the Boston Irish Business Association on the evening of November 29th at 6pm to welcome Dr. Windham-Bannister as she gives an update on the progress of MLSC and how they are collaborating with Ireland.
This event will once again be hosted by our sponsor, the Back Bay Hotel. We look forward to seeing you then!
