The Boston Business Journal just announced that at the annual Biotechnology Innovation Organization meeting, Boston was recognized as the city with the largest number of employers in the field of research testing and medical laboratories. The BBJ explains that from biotech giants such as Biogen to Genzyme to research labs at the prestigious Harvard and MIT, the city is booming in life science employment and early stage development.
Furthermore, MassBio CEO and President Bob Coughlin explains how, “The research shows Massachusetts shines at the earliest stages of industry, with high levels of academic research, NIH and venture capital investments, as well as number of patents earned by our institutions…” Specifically, MA had $9.5 billion in VC investment in a three year term and ranked just behind California in the number of life science patents awarded.
MBBP is proud to represent life sciences companies throughout the greater Boston area (and beyond), in fields including biotechnology, pharmaceuticals and medical devices, along with institutions and investors in a wide range of sophisticated legal matters that arise in connection with the development, protection and commercialization of their diagnostic and therapeutic solutions.
