Senate Candidates Respond to Biotech Issues in MassBio Questionnaire
As you are aware, government leaders in the United States have long had an avid interest in biotechnology, and with good reason. By harnessing breakthroughs in advanced biology and chemistry to innovative processes for developing and manufacturing products, biotechnology is positioned to deliver solutions for problems that face policy makers every day.
As you are also aware, we lost a true giant and compelling advocate for Massachusetts, our industry and patients when Senator Kennedy died. There are five candidates battling for that job.
In the past, MassBio has hosted candidate forums to highlight issues of interest to the industry. However, due to the circunstances of the special election, it was not possible to schedule. Instead, we have developed this questionnaire based on the MassBio Federal Action Plan to capture the issues that impact this industry that is vital to Massachusetts, the United States, and the world.
