President and CEO Massachusetts Life Sciences Center
On May 28, 2008, Dr. Susan Windham-Bannister was appointed by the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center Board of Directors to be the Center’s first President and CEO. She officially assumed that position in July, 2008.
The Massachusetts Life Sciences Center is a quasi-public entity created by the Legislature in 2006 to promote the life sciences within Massachusetts. The Center is at the heart of the state's new $1 billion life sciences law and is fast becoming the hub of connectivity for all sectors of the life sciences community - encouraging unprecedented public-private collaboration among industry, research, academia and government. The Center is making strategic investments in our life sciences workforce and in translational research at critical stages of the development cycle. These investments will foster and grow the Massachusetts life sciences Super Cluster, cultivating innovation at institutions whose research, development and
commercialization of therapies, products and cures hold great promise for improving and saving lives.
