Governor Healey Highlights Life Sciences Investments from Mass Leads Act in Worcester and Hopkinton

We hosted Governor Maura Healey, Lt. Governor Kim Driscoll, Secretary of Economic Development Yvonne Hao, and Rep. James C. Arena-DeRosa, from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Their visit to our Hopkinton site was part of the “Mass Leads Road Show” which supports the recent announcement of the proposed $1 billion, 10-year reauthorization of the Life Sciences Initiative.   

“The Mass Leads Act will strengthen Massachusetts’ global leadership and expand opportunity in our state now and for a generation to come. One key way we’ll do this is by reauthorizing the Life Sciences Initiative for another decade,” said Governor Healey. “Mass Biomedical Initiatives and RoslinCT are excellent examples of what happens when we invest in the world-class talent and innovation happening right here in Massachusetts. We want to build on their success and welcome more companies to move, start and grow here in our state.”  

Patrick Lucy, President & CEO of RoslinCT US, said, “RoslinCT applauds the proposal by the Healey administration to re-authorize the Life Sciences Initiative. The proposed investment of $1 billion over 10 years will enable the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to continue our global leadership in life sciences to develop cutting edge technologies and therapies offering hope to individuals around the world impacted by disease. The cell therapy sector is advancing efforts against the most complex and rare diseases and in some cases these therapies are potentially curative after a single dose.” 

Thanks to the Hopkinton Select Board Chair Muriel Kramer, Select Board Members Irfan Nasrullah & Amy Ritterbusch, Chamber of Commerce President Cristina Morrissiey, Committee Chair Scott Richardson, and Hopkinton Town Manager Norman Khumalo for being part of this visit and supporting what we do.
