Wondering how you can make a difference in Massachusetts biotechnology education? Register today to sponsor or participate in our upcoming MassBio Golf Classic, an annual golf tournament benefitting the MassBioEd Foundation! On September 7th, MassBioEd will return to the prestigious Pinehills Golf Club in Plymouth, MA for the 18th Annual Golf Classic.
Your participation in the Golf Classic directly supports these important STEM education programs and experiences that have proven to improve students’ access to and interest in life sciences careers:
The BioTeach program has supported 177 high schools with over $3 million in equipment, supplies, and consumables for cutting-edge biotechnology labs. This year, MassBioEd named BioTeach school Norton High School the Innovative School of the Year. “Norton is elated to be the recipient of this award,” said science coordinator Tanya Benoit. “It will be the launch for taking our biotechnology classes to the next level in the hopes of adding a second year 2 biotechnology elective.”
As you have probably noticed if you’ve been following along here at MassBioHQ, 2012 has been a very busy year so far for MassBio. The first half of the year included our Policy Breakfast, the MassBio Annual Meeting, and, most recently, Lifecycle Massachusetts: The Massachusetts Pavilion at the 2012 BIO International Convention. The Mass Pavilion showcased the unique elements and collaborative work of our life sciences super cluster and demonstrated why Massachusetts is the place to be.
We also recently had significant successes with legislation enacted both on Capitol Hill and Beacon Hill—with highlights including PDUFA reauthorization on the federal level and the passage of co-pay assistance legislation in Massachusetts.
Thank you to all our members and supporters for making the first half of 2012 such a success!
This summer we are gearing up for our not-to-be-missed late summer & fall events:
Join us for an afternoon of networking, raffles, cocktails, and hors d’oeuvres at the outdoor patio of Catalyst Restaurant, located just below our offices at 300 Tech Square. Register here. (Free parking at the Tech Square Garage!)
