MassBio and its members have been invited to participate in Governor Deval Patrick’s Innovation Economy Partnership Mission 2011, an upcoming trade mission hosted by The Commonwealth of Massachusetts to Israel and the United Kingdom.
The delegation will consist of Massachusetts business leaders focused on the technology, life sciences, clean energy and venture capital sectors. The mission—which is scheduled from March 7th to March 17th—is focused on developing new relationships and bringing new investment and jobs to Massachusetts.
MassBio delegates include:
- MassBio President & CEO Bob Coughlin
- MassBio Vice Chairman Geoff MacKay, CEO of Organogenesis
- Tamara Joseph, General Counsel of Cubist Pharmaceuticals
“There are existing links between Massachusetts’ life science companies and companies in Israel and the United Kingdom,” Coughlin said. “This trip should allow us to strengthen those connections and ignite new interest in collaboration.”
The mission will include industry forums, company visits and meetings with Israeli and UK business leaders and government officials in Tel Aviv, Haifa, Jerusalem, London and Cambridge.
