Last week, we held our first-ever virtual State of Possible Conference, where we gathered some of the brightest minds in the life sciences to debate industry issues and celebrate our successes. We heard inspiring Possible Talks®, panels, and keynotes from patients, students, and life sciences professionals, we honored Dr. Abbie Celniker (Third Rock Ventures) and Dr. Kenneth Anderson (Dana-Farber Cancer Institute & Harvard Medical School) with our Henri A. Termeer Innovative Leadership Award and State of Possible Award, respectively, and we tested the waters of virtual networking. Although we would have preferred to meet in-person, we were blown away by the support and engagement from our attendees as they adapted with us to this new reality.
In a bittersweet moment, we also said farewell to our past Board Chair, David Lucchino, who served MassBio for more than two years, and made a greater impact on our organization, the industry, and our ability to support our members’ diverse needs than he’ll ever know. For those who don’t know David, he’s a patient, entrepreneur, and advocate for the industry. We made this video to thank him and to share the impact he’s had with all of you:
Thank you David, for all you’ve done for MassBio and patients!
