MassBio Recognizes Marlborough as a Major Massachusetts Life Sciences Hub

The Massachusetts Biotechnology Council (MassBio) has identified Marlborough as a leading incubator for mature life sciences companies, and is now planning to host a Life Sciences Open House in the city this summer.

The news comes after the Marlborough Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) participated in the 20th BIO International Convention in Chicago, IL, which took place April 22nd-25th. MEDC was there on behalf of the City of Marlborough, one of just a couple of municipalities that, along with statewide economic development agencies, represented the Commonwealth at the “Lifecycle Massachusetts” Pavilion.

In December 2012, MassBio upgraded the City of Marlborough to its highest rating of Platinum BioReady Community, thus recognizing the city’s unwavering commitment to foster and host biotechnology companies.
