Robert Coughlin, MassBio

Mass­Bio head Cough­lin set to step down af­ter over­see­ing mas­sive bio­phar­ma ex­pan­sion in the state dur­ing 13-year tenure

The past decade has been good to bio­phar­ma, nowhere more so than the bustling and ever-ex­pand­ing life sci­ences hub in and around Boston. At the tip of the spear of that ex­pan­sion is non­prof­it trade as­so­ci­a­tion Mass­Bio and its long-tenured CEO Robert Cough­lin.

Now, Cough­lin is step­ping aside as the hub con­tin­ues to bloom.

In an open let­ter an­nounc­ing his de­par­ture ear­ly next year, Cough­lin tout­ed the work Mass­Bio has done in his 13 years at the non­prof­it amid an in­dus­try­wide boom that has brought 18 of the top 20 bio­phar­ma play­ers to the greater Boston area, he said.
