Statement by MassBio President & CEO Robert K. Coughlin on the Election of Congresswoman Katherine Clark to Assistant Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives

Nov 19, 2020

“MassBio congratulates Congresswoman Katherine Clark on being elected by her fellow Democrats to the position of Assistant Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives. Congresswoman Clark has always been a champion of the life sciences industry, dating back to her days serving as a member of both the House and Senate in the Massachusetts Legislature. Representing a district with a large life sciences presence, she knows first-hand how important the industry is to the Commonwealth’s economy and job creation, but more importantly, she understands the vital role it plays in improving patient lives and bringing hope to those with unmet medical needs. Even more, Congresswoman Clark is a true collaborator. Now more than ever, industry and government need to work together to foster innovation and tackle our toughest medical problems and I look forward to working with her in this new role.”
