A press release from the group included a statement from its president and chief executive, Robert K. Coughlin, who sought to explain the need for a new name and a rebranding.
“Today it is time to reposition the Massachusetts Biotechnology Council to reflect our breadth of services from both a graphic and strategic standpoint,” Coughlin said. “MassBio better reflects our commitment to improve and evolve to best meet our members’ needs. We are an organization that connects and convenes, that brings together industry leaders to teach and to learn. We have recommitted to our mission of helping our members reach their fullest potential to solve unmet medical needs.”
Founded in 1985, the organizaion is made up of more than 600 biotechnology companies, businesses related to the industry, teaching hospitals, and academic institutions.
