Statement by MassBio President & CEO Robert K. Coughlin on President Trump’s Executive Order on Immigration

Apr 24, 2020

“Disease knows no borders and neither does scientific innovation. We need the best and brightest from around the world working to solve the toughest unmet medical needs for patients, not just for COVID-19, but for all of the other diseases out there with no single treatment. If we further restrict immigration as a country, we’ll not only threaten the long-term sustainability and growth of the life sciences industry throughout the U.S., especially in Massachusetts, we risk losing valuable talent to other countries.

“We will continue to work with our partners in government to advocate for and advance policies that will allow the best and the brightest people from across the world to join our cluster – and doing so in the safest way possible – and we encourage all companies in all industries to do the same.”

– Bob Coughlin, President & CEO, MassBio
