#ICYMI: Why Massachusetts is the State of Possible

Jun 14, 2018

The BIO Convention has come and gone, having attracted over 18,000 attendees (the most in at least 10 years), but Massachusetts’ reputation as the State of Possible is here to stay. We heard from an impressive lineup of speakers at the Massachusetts Pavilion at BIO who all shared their stories of what’s possible in our great Commonwealth, and how far we’ve come in solving some of the world’s toughest medical problems. Patients shared the highs and lows of their journeys with rare diseases and other medical conditions, reminding us all why we’re in this business. We celebrated our state’s successes with a community concert in Boston’s Seaport with a big, diverse crowd, comprised of the men and women who work so hard every day to bring lifesaving therapies to patients.

In the days leading up to and during the Convention, several Massachusetts media outlets captured just what makes our state the #1 life sciences cluster in the world. From successes and failures, to diversity and IPOs, they covered it all. And we wanted to make sure you didn’t miss it.

Here is a compilation of the great coverage that shows why Massachusetts is the State of Possible:

Until next year!
